Publisher's Summary

Brilliant 21st-century tycoon Justin Cord was brought from cryogenic storage into a 24th-century society where people own stock in one another, safeguarding each other's welfare only out of economic self-interest. This is anathema to the defiantly individualistic Cord, who leads the outer edges of the solar system to form a new government and revolt against the core world of Earth and Mars.

Critic Reviews

"The Kollin brothers keep the plot moving briskly despite the high proportion of talk to action. Their cerebral style will especially appeal to readers nostalgic for science fiction's early years." (Publishers Weekly)
"The Kollin brothers’ debut captivates with unforgettable characters and an ingenious vision of the economic future." (Booklist)

The life of Justin Cord

This is one of the most complex books I've listed to in the history of story telling. More moving parts than an engine and it was all worth it. Not once was I wondering, my god where is this going? I feel if I talk about anything in this book than it would spoil it for the people whom loved the Unincorporated Man. Justin Cord is still true to his nature but war has taken a little bit of his compassion away.

It took me a little bit of time to get used to Eric G Dove as narrator as Todd McLaren had painted the people in this world with such a detailed brush in the unincorporated man. There should be a rule if your going to start a series and your excellent at it then you need to drive it all the way home.

It was worth my time and energy it took to listen to this book. And really, isn't that what you REALLY want?

I will be buying the next book.

to be continued !!

If you are anything like me and hate to wait an indefinite amount of time for a sequel just to find out how the story ends, avoid this book !!

It's a great story but I would never have bought it, if there had been so much as a hint, that the book ends somewhere in the middle of it.

Even if / when the sequel is published, I will refuse to buy it until I am absolutely sure that it concludes the story.

So I cannot rate this with more than 3 stars, although the story itself certainly deserves at least 4.

Great disappointment !
