Tanner Moore is at the top of his game in the high stakes world of big technology. As chief technology
officer of Paragon, the largest corporation in the world, he is about to release the greatest convenience
innovation in the history of commerce: drone delivery service to every inch of the globe.
But when an interview with journalist Amy Noral is secretly recorded and published by the clickbait media,
Tanner’s fall from grace is swift and brutal.
Tanner is fired, publicly condemned as a terrorist for comments he never made, and kidnapped by a
mysterious vigilante group who use surveillance data to track and kill their enemies. Tanner must navigate their underground world full of violent zealots and mental manipulation to find his way to
freedom, or see his drone technology used as the most advanced assassination tool ever devised.
Moral Panic explores the collision of the most extreme elements of politics, ideology and technological media manipulation. It navigates through a maze of modern surveillance with a skeptical eye on the data-driven world we live in, to bring an awareness of the possibility of such a story coming true in the real world.

I signed up for this tour, only because of the synopsis. The synopsis reminded me of a book that I had loved reading, which had the story of a man being kidnapped by some group. Even though that was the reason I signed up, this turned out to be a completely different story, but somehow I still loved Moral Panic.
There were many characters in this book, and many different subplots. Even though Tanner’s was the main one, we get to know about some other people’s stories as well. How people were lured into something they can never escape from. How few people twist the knowledge of holy books to justify their sinful actions and how painful experience can turn a good man into a beast. How power can possibly wreck conscience. These were a few things I get to know through pages of this book, and through different characters.
Though I didn’t agree with every action Tanner took, but I still found his character to be quite likeable. Tanner was a really well built character. Different layers of his character was explored through the story, his morals, ethics were tested throughout the book. Other characters which I liked were Sam and Amy.
Another thing I loved about this book was definitely the world it was based on, the more technologically advanced earth. I liked learning about the new technologies that the author wrote about. The way things can be manipulated for someone’s own desire, and how technology can destroy us were certain issues that was talked about quite a lot in the book, and actually made the base of the book. This was something which was quite interesting to me, someone who comes from an technological background.
Moral Panic was quite a page turner given the concept, the mystery involved, and the twists and turns. Though the later part of the first half became a bit slow but it quickly picked up its pace in the second half.

About the author
Hailing from the original birthplace of the atomic bomb, Los Alamos, NM, K.M. Ecke is an organic, free-range, preservative-free, philosopher-poet
using universal truth to battle cultural insanity.
Ecke, which is German for ‘corner’, is the child of a physicist and musician and grew up at the corner of creativity and logic. After ten years of
existential exploration and creative experimentation, he releases his debut novel Moral Panic, along with an album of lyrically-focused songs,
Change of Mind via his independent creative collective The Dream Flow.
Ecke strives to deliver a strong story with inherent value to his readers. The author is well-versed in writing, including essays, songs and poetry, the last of which the author finds the most efficient form of expression, and thus, the best way to improve his writing practice.
Initially intending for law school, a business law class changed his direction, and Ecke chose to pursue writing, soul-searching and creative projects. After several years of odd jobs learning about different pieces of the world, he began his own private music teaching business and
attended Colorado Film School for a year and a half to study filmmaking. After 18-months in his program, he veered to his own path and established Dream Flow Media, the home to all of his creative endeavors; publishing, music and all additional branches of the many-faceted visionary.
Along with his own creations, he strives to bring other artists into the fold to develop a creative collective for a variety of multimedia projects.
Ecke also works as a filmmaker for local non-profits and bands, and hopes one day to see Moral Panic on the big screen. The author lives in Denver, Colorado and hosts a storytelling micro-podcast Myths, Metaphors, and Morality. For more info, visit the author online at
