Deep State (Dagmar, #2) - Walter Jon Williams Another fun read, featuring Alternative Reality Game (ARG) creator, Dagmar, and her team. This is the second in the series, and is best read after the first, This Is Not A Game, although not required, it will add to your understanding and enjoyment. Very interesting to contrast what is going on in this story, where an ARG staged on location with ARG tourists and remote participants searching for clues in Turkey acts as a compelling promotion for a new James Bond thriller, leading to follow-on activity, where the Web and flash-mobs respond to the ARG techniques to bring down a repressive military junta.

Lots of action, a technothriller with cyber-warfare complications, very interesting ironic deployment of the High Zap internet disruptive technology by the military who have acquired/captured it during a deployment by the CIA and NSA against Syria, against the home team. Very topical, reminds me of the Stuxnet virus escaping after deployment by the US and Israel against Iran, these cyber weapons are multi-edged.

for some conjecture about the fall of Morsi in Egypt, once again sci-fi gets out ahead of the reality, but not by very far.
