Description

By the year 2115, twelve families control all wealth in America, the middle class is myth, democracy a con game and the Supreme Court has just legalized a new entertainment and status option for the bored elite--human slavery. Spartak Jones, an Olympic bound gymnast, is kidnapped, sold and forced to become the first legal slave since the civil war, a trophy birthday present for the eldest son of the richest family. Targeted for his physical beauty and athletic talents, the teenager is not shy about using them to survive and protect his family. When a war erupts within the ruling class, he proves himself a lethal warrior, fearless, resourceful and photogenic. His swashbuckling exploits awaken a long dormant liberal underground hungry to restore democracy. In a world both familiar and horribly twisted, Spartak becomes a symbol of hope, a flesh and blood icon for an American that used to be and might be again, if he can survive. A riveting tale with a powerful political undercurrent.
