The Warehouse, Rob Hart

The Warehouse opening line: Well, I’m dying!

The Warehouse

My blurb:

Cloud reigns supreme They have taken over the retail space in such a manner that no-one can compete. And in order for them to be the best they have to ensure that everything works properly. Are they hiding something sinister, and if so, can Zinnia work out what it is?

The Warehouse
Gun violence, climate change and unemployment have ravaged the United States beyond recognition.
Amidst the wreckage, an online retail giant named Cloud reigns supreme. Cloud brands itself not just as an online storefront, but as a global saviour. Yet, beneath the sunny exterior, lurks something far more sinister.
Paxton never thought he’d be working Security for the company that ruined his life, much less that he’d be moving into one of their sprawling live-work facilities. But compared to what’s left outside, perhaps Cloud isn’t so bad. Better still, through his work he meets Zinnia, who fills him with hope for their shared future.
Except that Zinnia is not what she seems. And Paxton, with his all-access security credentials, might just be her meal ticket.
As Paxton and Zinnia’s agendas place them on a collision course, they’re about to learn just how far the Cloud will go to make the world a better place.
To beat the system, you have to be inside it.
My verdict:

I rue the day when we cannot take a step outside and when everything we need is delivered to our door! This book is a truth I hope never happens. A good read with a lot of thought provoking issues.


Who knew that just two months’ from writing this review we would all be locked indoors, having everything we need delivered to us.

  1. Hi Tandy, Being a very senior citizen, I also rue the day when you won’t have to leave your abode to do practically anything at all! New shoes . tick; more food? – tick; a video of a film you fancy seeing – tick; need more company? I’m sure that could be easily arranged too. The High Street must do something drastic or die..So much for progress. At least I won’t see much of that robotic age…Best wishes.

    1. The High Street sadly seems to be a dying phenomenon in the UK. And given the parking fine we got even though we paid for parking, I am not surprised!

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
