A man puts his life on the line to make the company that destroyed so many people's lives pay for their hubris in the dystopian novel Kill Zone by Damir Salkovic. Despite that the environment they live in is only comfortable and secure for the corporate class of society, Frank Clayton and his wife are doing well. After their son died, Frank's wife left him, and he lost his status, leaving Frank little choice but to join the army in the reality show sponsored by the major corporations. Miraculously surviving for several months, Frank suddenly has the prospect of getting revenge on those who destroyed the last happy vestiges of his life. Escaping the studio's set and receiving a new identity along with a fortune, Frank can do whatever he wants with his future. Frank can alter his appearance, disappear and live a comfortable life, or avenge the lives of his family and friends. Can he take down the studios on his own? Or are the ones behind his makeover another faction manipulating him from behind the scenes, influencing his choices?

Set in a collapsing world and society, Kill Zone by Damir Salkovic is a thrilling dystopian novel. The backdrop eerily echoes the current world before it falls into decay and collapse. The corporations are disturbingly realistic, unconcerned about the effects their industries have on the earth and its inhabitants. It is a thought-provoking story that captures and holds the reader's attention from the first page until the last. The book has a thrilling plot complete with formidable villains and war-torn settings, magnificently blended with tense scenes filled with weapons, blood, and guts. All the elements in the story mesh well together to form an exciting novel that will enthrall those who enjoy books set in a dystopian world with violence, suspense, and action.
