The battle for the fate of humanity is about to begin…
Following a global economic collapse in 2029 that brought governments to their knees, chaos and brutal violence spread across the globe. To fill the power vacuum, huge multinational corporations, backed by their wealthy benefactors, seized the reins of power and took over governing the masses. Nearly sixty years later, the world has returned to an era of prosperity and progress. There is no crime, no unemployment, no homelessness, and no war.
The progress has come at a price. People are nothing more than disposable pawns for corporate machines whose sole purpose is to enrich the elite who trade their shares on the world’s lone stock exchange, Intercorpex. Every employee is constantly monitored, their activities logged, and every sentence they utter dissected for hints of subversion. Most of the world’s population has accepted this as the way of life. Not all of them have.
When terrorists set off an explosion that causes problems with trading on the exchange, it sets a series of events in motion that threatens the very fabric of society. Egos clash as bureaucrats, leaders, and the wealthy elite all play politics in the midst of the greatest threat the new economic system has ever faced. Battle lines are being drawn. Alliances are forming. Power moves are being made. Will an attack on the exchange succeed in bringing society to its knees, or can a last ditch effort save the world from plunging into the darkness of another economic collapse?
˃˃˃ An Intelligent Read With Twists and Turns
The novel is written from the perspectives of multiple characters, putting the reader in the middle of the action and creating a much richer personal connection to them.
˃˃˃ More Than Just a Typical Thriller
Politics is a common thread that runs through the fabric of all human endeavors, and the year 2088 is no exception. This is not a novel with random violence leading to no discernible end. Everything happens for a reason, and political maneuvering is at the heart of most of it.
˃˃˃ A Glimpse Into the Future with Relevance to Today
America, Inc. is a terrifying look at what the world could be. The themes in the novel have plenty of modern day significance.
