About the Book
The world of corporate greed runs rampant after the government’s dissolution has left police, fire, and all other services once handled by the public sector in the hands of privatized businesses and wealthy investors.
With the class divide ever widening, debtor prisons for the lower and middle classes overflowing, disease ravaging the country, and resources running dry, the streets have become a battleground for those who would fight against the elite’s corrupt system, against a world spiraling into ruin, against the devastating impact of a society ruled by the Private Sector.
“In the tradition of 1984, Leigh M. Lane delivers a terrifying vision of the future—a horrific future that may not be so distant after all….”—Lisa Mannetti, Stoker Award-winning author of The Gentling Box and Deathwatch
“The Private Sector (World-Mart) is a really interesting tale because of the realism that Leigh M. Lane is able to bring[…]. Sometimes dystopian stories can be hard to follow, but Lane’s description of this greedy and money hungry world is something that I could immediately see. I think a lot of readers will be able to relate to these problems and will suffer with the characters, knowing it’s possible that these things could actually happen. I really enjoyed this premise and thought Lane executed it beautifully. It was a very thought provoking story. 5 stars” –Taylor Wade, Readers’ Favorite
