"Down in the Pit, as the focus switched to the Wall Team's attack, people started to come to life. Many of the prisoners that the guards had assumed were dead were merely hunkered down, trying to ride out the storm. As the firestorm that had raged into the Pit slackened, heads came up and peered around. It was at this point that the massive bulk of Taber Karimnamazi rose from the pile of wreckage and bodies that had been covering him, and took a gun from the lifeless hands of one of the corpses that had protected him. He stood tall and shouted to the men and women crouched in the Pit and shouted, "There are only two types of people in the Pit, those who are dead, and those who are going to die. I for one am not going down without a fight, and if I die I will die a free man fighting for what is right. If you want to live, follow me!" What starts as a futuristic version of Solzhenitsyn's 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich' rapidly explodes into a thriller more fast paced and action packed than anything written by Matthew Reilly. Imprisoned for trying to bring truth to the people of the planet Girtab, Riikard Lander attempts to survive in the savage prison system he once worked in. Inspired by the people he meets he starts to dream the impossible, wanting to escape from the confines of the prison Pit and show the people of Girtab the way to freedom and liberty. Working together, a group of prisoners led by Riikard try to escape from the prison, intending to liberate another prison camp and attack the main military base so they can use the transmitters before they are destroyed.

About Bob Scott
Born in Basingstoke, Britain in 1978, I emigrated to the USA in 2007 to be with my American wife and to raise a family. Majoring in College in History and Computing, I worked in various parts of the computer industry (programming was fun, tech support, not so much), although all my spare time was spent reading and researching. This reading inspired me to write, and I hope my writing inspires you.
