Weaving
philosophy and science together into a riveting, dystopian story of love and
adventure, The Office of Mercy
illuminates an all-too-real future imagined by a phenomenal new voice in
fiction.

Twenty-four-year-old Natasha Wiley lives in America-Five—a high-tech,
underground, utopian settlement where hunger and money do not exist, everyone
has a job, and all basic needs are met. But when her mentor and colleague,
Jeffrey, selects her to join a special team to venture Outside for the first
time, Natasha’s allegiances to home, society, and above all to Jeffrey are
tested. She is forced to make a choice that may put the people she loves most
in grave danger and change the world as she knows it.
