Primary Termination: The Tanya Teal Corporate War Chronicles Thriller by Vincent Zandri
In the year 2028, a massive online corporation called Everest will control our lives. It will also control everything we buy, including books, food, medical care, police protection, religion, political affiliations…Everything!
When Senior Acquisitions editor, Tanya Teal, is fired from the last remaining NYC publishing house due to overwhelming competition from Everest’s Cradle Direct Publishing service, she finds herself having to move back in with her parents in Upstate New York. Since she’ll be hard pressed to ever find another editing job again, they persuade her to join the Everest Primary Program, which guarantees a living wage so long as she purchases Everest products exclusively. But after rekindling her love affair with an old boyfriend, Tony Smart, who is a Cradle Direct Publishing bestseller, they drink a few too many and end up breaking the rules of the Primary Program.
That bad move leads to their official Primary Termination and a horrific hunt on behalf of the Everest Police that begins inside Tanya’s own Everest AI-monitored home and that leads up into the mountains and the home of the Everest Resistance. It also leads to a stunning revelation over the precise fate of terminated members—the prisons they are incarcerated in and the massive fulfillment centers where they are used as slave labor.
Part cyberpunk adventure, part dystopian apocalyptic page-turner, part romantic suspense, Primary Termination is Book I of an anticipated gripping three novel series that’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. From New York Times and USA Today bestselling Thriller Award winning author, Vincent Zandri, comes a new killer thriller that will keep you wanting more, and more.
