THE END OF MARKING TIME ~ $.99

C. J. WEST

Michael O’Connor moves like a ghost. He’s so good he can bag your valuables while you’re home and you won’t ever know. One supremely unlucky day his credit card fence turns him in. The world is safe from Michael until the Supreme Court rules long term incarceration cruel and unusual punishment and releases 2,000,000 felons.

Criminals rampage. Citizens barricade themselves in. Police departments take extreme measures, but they have no way to deal with the criminals they arrest until Wendell Cummings develops reeducation. The system is a brutal violation of privacy and human rights, but citizens want protection at any cost and the reeducation system gives it to them.

The End of Marking Time opens with Michael trapped in a hallway before a one-way mirror. He tells you his story because he believes you are his jury and if you press the green button, he will be given another chance. Michael doesn't understand what is happening to him because he was the last felon released. He was unconscious while reeducation was introduced and he doesn't believe he can be punished in a world without prison. The mystery of this book is not who Michael thinks you are, but who is sitting in the thirteen chairs behind the window and what fate they will choose for Michael.
