When you take away people's choices, the only choice left is revolution.
Eric Thomas' debut thriller is an exciting, violent and thought provoking story that asks the question, "What happens after you've won the revolution?" The story centers around Josh, a member of the hacktivist group Anonymous, who is living in safe seclusion until he's recruited by a bloodthirsty group of revolutionaries called "The Citizens." They've launched a war on the wealthy; stealing Ebola vaccinations from rich pharmaceutical companies during a nationwide outbreak and handing them out for free to the poor. Josh is reluctant to join until he meets Betty, a sarcastic, pink haired revolutionary motivated by her recent misfortune.Josh and Betty ride the wave of the uprising that will put them on the front line in the battle between the "haves" and the "have-nots," a classic class warfare struggle where the rights of the many finally outweigh the rights of the few.

Eric Thomas lives in Royal Oak, Michigan with his dog and cat.Review:
A cross between an apocalyptic technothriller and political suspense novel, Citizens pulls off the difficult task of presenting two cautionary tales, one buried inside the other. These cautionary tales lie at the heart of the his story, and the shift from one to the other is where Citizens finds its unique niche in modern storytelling. Corporate excess, political maneuvering, and a growing American insurgency combine, in a near futuristic setting, to set the stage for an entertaining, yet hard hitting read. -- Stephen Konkoly, author of "The Jakarta Pandemic" and the "Black Flagged" series.
Hold on to your hats when you read this political thriller! The theme is classic: a demagogue rises to power. But the treatment is modern: Michigan is the site of a popular uprising. Think "occupy" in spades. The plot is fast-paced and the characters interesting, even though it's hard to think of befriending any of them! Weak stomachs beware, there's lots of blood and gore. Read this book and remember it when you listen to exalted would-be leaders. - C.J. Tremblay, author of "The Patriot Conspiracy"
