Publisher's Summary

American Book Fest 2017 Science Fiction Finalist
Joe Warren, an unemployed electrical engineer, has a terminally ill girlfriend and a bank account bumping rock bottom. Jobs are scarce in 2050, since nanotechnology has created the ability to animate the recently deceased, who are put to work performing menial labor at low wages. These Revivants have glutted the job market, leaving their living counterparts out in the cold.
Joe goes looking for a helping hand and mistakenly gets arrested with a group of freedom fighters. The only cause Joe wants to fight for is Joe, but federal agents coerce him into spying on the Children of Liberty.
When Joe reluctantly infiltrates the protest group, he finds something he never expected or wanted. Friends. And he discovers that maybe there are things in life worth fighting - and dying - for.

Couldn't put it down!

Oh my goodness! I enjoyed this book from start to finish! I stayed up late listening and couldn't wait to put my ear phones on the next day. The story premise is one I have never heard before and it was great! I laughed...a lot. The author's sense of humor is better than most. Scott Bennett is one of my favorite narrators. The timber of his voice, the cadence of his narration and his characters are right on. I try to listen to him any chance I get.
All in all, I definitely recommend this book!

This book would make a great movie.

This book would make a great movie. It has action, suspense, an unlikely hero, a cause worth fighting for and an unusual take on zombies. Set in an economically dissolving USA, greed, the thirst for power and mismanagement have brought the county to its knees. The national debt, unemployment and poverty is sky-high, and with the help of nanobot technology, the reanimated dead (Revivants) have replaced human workers, providing a no-questions-asked, controllable workforce. Homeland Security Agents are the sole law, having replaced the military, police and FBI, and they are willing to go to any lengths to maintain the facade of a healthy government. Joe is somewhat of an antihero; he is selfish, sarcastic, lazy and somewhat of a jerk, but you can not help but become attached to him, as he is beaten, manipulated and coerced. Often in the wrong place at the wrong time, he is drawn into the battle between the Homeland Agents, who are trying to hide their plans and the truth from the general populace, and the Children of Liberty who want to reveal the deception. This book has some great characters with lots of different accents and the narrator of the audiobook, J Scott Bennett, did them all expertly. He really brought the characters to life and did a great job of showing the humour and sarcasm in the story too. This is a well written and narrated book that flows well and keeps you entertained to the end. I really hope that the author plans on a sequel, as I would love to listen to more.
