The Light of Other Days
When a brilliant, driven industrialist harnesses the cutting edge of quantum physics to enable people everywhere, at trivial cost, to see one another at all times: around every corner, through every wall, into everyone's most private, hidden, and even intimate moments. It amounts to the sudden and complete abolition of human privacy--forever.
Then, as society reels, the same technology proves able to look backwards in time as well. What happens next is a story only Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter could tell. The Light of Other Days is a novel that will change your view of what it is to be human.

It's a great story. The idea of a not-so-simple innovation permanently changing the world around us and redirecting our very existence makes perfect sense. That's how it works. The ending has stayed with me for years.
Great story and very cool concept.
