This hilarious, twisted, and even terrifying conceptualization of a vision of a not too distant future runs in the same veins as work by Kurt Vonnegut and George Orwell’s 1984.

In this world, corporations have gotten so large and powerful that they have actually come to run nearly everything. Employees of these corporations take on last names based on companies that they work at. Everything is touted as a free market enterprise that is all about capitalism and being a global paradise, or so they say.

Meet the character of Hack Nike. This main character is a merchandise officer. His job is not very high up and he also is not the best when it comes to trying to get a raise or renegotiate his working salary. When the two John Nikes offer Hack a contract, he’s interested.

These two execs have come from Marketing, and he signs the contract eagerly but fails to read it first. That is a mistake, as his contract obligates him to facilitate teens being shot so that Nike can gain street credit when it comes to their new sneaker line of trainers that cost $2,500.

Hack tries to go tell the police about what’s going on. However, they think that he is asking them to get a subcontracting deal that involves leasing this out to the NRA, which is more suited to this type of thing. That is where Jennifer Government comes in.

This agent is tough. She’s got a tattoo of a bar code underneath one of her eyes. and she’s after Hack. Can he escape? Read this book to find out!
