What They Deserve


SEATTLE, WA: 2053.

Summer Wilkins, the official spokesperson for the Reformed United States, is still grieving the loss of her son when a shocking murder rocks the city. After her husband is implicated, she’s drawn into a rebellion that’s ready to do anything to find out the truth behind the new “Inevix patches” being distributed to the public. Murder, mystery, and politics abound as Summer finds out that the biggest secrets are being hidden in her own family.


From fantasy author Crystal Kirkham: “The author masterfully weaves a more convoluted tale of secrets and betrayal.”

From Canadian humor author Willie Handler: “Excellent characters, great plot twists and a superb finish makes for a great read!”

From fantasy author Ryen Lesli: “What They Deserve by Sam Hendricks was one crazy fucking ride. Sam creates a vivid world that could easily become reality in our foreseeable future … I finished it in one setting because I HAD to know how it ended, it was that fast.”


“There’s no place in the world like Seattle. It sits on the northwest corner of the Reformed United States with a thirty-foot titanium wall hugging its borders. The glinting silver metal penetrates the waters of the Puget Sound, preventing marine traffic from entering anywhere except through one heavily patrolled checkpoint. I haven’t been outside the wall in ten years, but it doesn’t bother me. I’m one of the lucky ones.” ***
