Sallie Cochren
Free sample

Set in the far distant future, President Aldrich struggles to maintain control of what little is left of the United States after World War III decimates most of the country. Through a cruel dictatorship, he and his brother produce “Check Mate,” a show that rewards contestants for completing the ultimate crime of murder. Among Aldrich's worries is a group of plotters who are determined to bring him and the High Council down. As leader of the plotters, Darren wonders if he can keep the girl he loves safe, or if Maria will become another casualty of Aldrich’s regime. Knowing that they must add numbers to their group to have any chance at all, will the plotters be okay with the newcomers’ methods or will their violent ways make them as bad as Aldrich? In a township with growing hatred for the High Council, the plotters may get more help than they expect.
