"cutting edge science fiction thriller"
In the not too distant future, there is one world
government although regional areas retain some autonomy.
Ko, one of the biggest corporations is about to receive
regional status as they contribute almost seven percent to
the world's economy. Ren Segura, known as Jackal, is the
epitome of the corporate citizen and Ko is doing everything
in their power to see that she reaches her full potential
as a citizen the world can look up to and admire.
Life is going smoothly for Jackal as she is partnered with
Snow, the love of her life. A recreational expedition turns
into a tragedy and Jackal is blamed for terrorist
activities and the deaths of hundreds of people. Stripped
of her status, she is sentenced to virtual confinement but
when she gets out, it seems that years have passed instead
of months. In the real world, Jackal meets other survivors
like her at a restaurant called SOLITAIRE where she must
learn to play with the hand fate dealt her.
This is Kelley Eskridge's first novel but with her immense
talent it definitely won't be her last. SOLITAIRE is a
cutting edge science fiction thriller starring a heroine
who has an inner core of strength that allows her to live
life on her own terms despite the factions that want to use
her for their own purposes. This is a winner for genre fans.
