Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615524753, Paperback)

Leonard Tramer and his family live in Colorado, trapped behind the walls of a totalitarian state. Dedicated to one another and determined to find the free world, they plan an escape which defies the odds and deceives their tyrannical government.            

Emerging at a time when personal liberties and Internet privacy are slowly eroding, NINE-TENTHS offers a window into a dysfunctional society, while celebrating the resiliency of the human spirit and the natural urge to resist oppression.

"I have read a lot of books about dystopian societies. They can really be hit or miss. This one was a hit." - Erin, The Ultimate Book Nook

"The book has themes coming from 1984, George Orwell, and Ayn Rand, but it's all done in a way that feels different and refreshing." - Jeffrey C. Meade

"Nine-Tenths is more than just a thriller. It's a sobering and all-too-real look at the end of a road we've already begun to travel, and I applaud the author for a job well done in presenting it. Easily one of the top five independent novels I've read, and highly recommended." - Stephen England
