Welcome to Chain-Gang All-Stars – the highly popular, highly controversial profit-raising program inside America’s private prison system. Harkening back to the time of gladiators, but watched by millions of live-stream subscribers, prisoners compete for the ultimate prize: their freedom.
Loretta Thurwar and Hamara ‘Hurricane Staxxx’ Stacker, teammates and lovers, are the fan favourites. If all goes well, Thurwar will be free in just a few matches, a fact she carries as heavily as her lethal hammer. But will the price be simply too high?
From one of American fiction’s brightest stars, this is an electrifying, page-turning near-future dystopia perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale, Squid Game and Watchmen.
