ROEBUCK’S PRIZE, by Michael Shapiro
In a world where the economy is collapsing and legitimate businesses are failing to meet people’s needs, Raf finds himself out of a job and struggling to keep his head above water. His once-loving wife has turned her attention elsewhere, leaving him feeling lost and alone. But Raf refuses to give up. Armed with his education, skills, and resourcefulness, he ventures into the underground world of the Real Deal Economy, where survival depends on one’s ability to adapt and thrive in the face of danger.
As Raf navigates the treacherous waters of this new world, he discovers that his past experiences and knowledge may not be enough to ensure his survival. He must learn to rely on his wits and his instincts as he cobbles together a new life for himself. Will he be able to redeem himself in this unforgiving landscape, or will he fall victim to the harsh realities of a dystopian future?
