When the gleaming new Manderley Resort opens in twenty-four hours, Santa Barbara's exclusive beachfront hotel will offer its patrons the ultimate in luxury and high-tech security. No indulgence has been ignored, no detail overlooked. But all the money in the world can't guarantee safety. As hotel manager Tessa and her employees ready the hotel for its invitation-only grand opening, a killer is in their midst. One by one, staff are picked off with ruthless precision. And before the night is over, as Tessa desperately struggles to survive, it will become clear that the strangest and most terrible truth at Manderley is simply this: someone is watching. With stunning ingenuity, Gina Wohlsdorf puts readers front and center as the elite resort becomes a house of horrors. Riveting to the final sentence, Security is fierce, wry, and impossible to put down. With a deep bow to the literary tradition of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier, Wohlsdorf's razor-wire prose blitzes readers with quick twists, sharp turns, and gasp-inducing terror. Security is at once a shocking thriller, a brilliant narrative puzzle, and a moving, multifaceted love story unlike any other.… (mere)

Interesting concept-telling a story through security terminals-but it just felt soulless. When you figure out who the narrator is it makes sense as to why it's so bland & robotic, but it's not compelling and I just felt bored. ( )

This isn't high literary fiction. That doesn't mean it isn't well-written. It's a wickedly-compelling thriller, violent as hell, and darkly funny. Reminded me of The Last Werewolf in terms of tone and perhaps style, but it is a twisted little story all on its own. ( )

Very well done! In fact; Bloody brilliant. Literally. Security is an exciting, clever and brutal thriller. It's basically the book equivalent of a slasher film. Well, maybe a slasher-horror novel with a little romance, and a LOT of humor in it, which actually made me laugh, a lot. I spent a lot of last night telling my friends certain scenes in the novel, with the chef, who was cooking his dinner....who's scene I loved.
.
The writing style may not be liked by a lot of readers, but I loved it. I read it in ebook form, and I had NO issues with it like this, either. I don't know why other people did. It wasn't that confusing.
I really don't want to say anything about the plot because it's honestly best to go in blind. The less you know the better.

Overall, this is a fast-paced story with a unique narrative that will keep you on the edge of your seat. 4 stars, and highly recommended . ( )

The writing style may not be everyones cup of tea but I loved it.
A majority of the book is told via security cameras so the pages occasionally split into multiple columns to showcase what is happening in different parts of the hotel. Because of this, I highly suggest reading the hardcover edition (I'm not sure how this would look as an ebook).

This isn't going to win any awards, but I enjoyed this really unique point of view. This was a fun, fast thriller. I couldn't wait to keep turning the page. ( )
