Alpha - Colin F. Barnes
Alpha is the first novel in the Code Breakers series. This book is free for the kindle. It's the year 2153 and Gerry Cardle has just won the lottery. The trouble is the winners of this lottery have to die to maintain the proper population density. Gerry is not happy. Especially since Gerry is in charge of the algorithm for picking lottery winners, and he's supposed to be exempt. Gerry is about to find out there's more to modern society than he realized. Gerry is about to go off the grid. This is a good science fiction story about yet another dystopian future. Think a combination of Mad Max and Oblivion. It's not great but worth reading, and it's free. Highly recommended.
