You’ve had a good life. Let us help you have a good death.

Thalamus

by Patrick E. Douglas

In the near future, with the economy failing and hoards of people out of work, many have become tethered to their debt. ArenasCorp has come up with a solution that involves selling limbs for loads of money intended to get people out of financial trouble. The rich get healthy body parts and the poor are able to buy a little more time. When a celebrity reporter reveals the latest ArenasCorp breakthrough—a cure for cancer—he also announces to the nation that he’s committing suicide for the program. His future reveals not the death that he expected but a situation that will make him wish he could take his own life.

The latest novel from master thriller author Patrick E. Douglas takes the reader on a terrifying trip through a dystopian world where love, desperation, sacrifice and greed mix in an unbelievably believable tale.
