Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692316019, Paperback)

It’s 2025. The United States is in the shadow of a puppet government run by giant corporations, and the 99 percent live without rights or the protection of government regulations, fully at the mercy of the 1 percent. Among the most powerful entities are the pharmaceutical suppliers, the weapons manufacturers, and insurance companies, which rake in massive fortunes because of the mandatory insurance requirements, but never pay out.

Amid this corporate dystopia, we find Floyd Jasper, a mercenary whose job title as a “health insurance claims investigator” belies his actual function. A maniacal killing machine, he’s good at what he was programmed to do: punish insurance “fraudsters”—brutally and permanently.

But if you think this status quo seems unhinged, just wait until Floyd’s drug use explodes and he has an illicit affair with a coworker. Floyd’s world continues to unravel when, suddenly, he realizes that someone is trying to kill him.

A fast-paced, in-your-face, rollicking roller-coaster ride to hell and back, Glitch In The Machine immerses readers in a world that’s so off balance, you won’t know whom to root for. It’s over-the-top political satire at its most fearsome.
