The year is 2042, and the long-predicted tipping point has arrived. For the first time in human history, the economic pyramid has flipped: The feeble old now outnumber the vigorous young, and this untenable situation is intensifying a battle between competing cultural agendas. Reporter Julia Davidson-a formerly award-winning journalist seeking to revive a flagging career-is investigating the growing crisis, unaware that her activity makes her a pawn in an ominous conspiracy.

Plagued by nightmares about her absent father, Julia finds herself drawn to the quiet strength of a man she meets at a friend's church. As the engrossing plot of FATHERLESS unfolds, Julia faces choices that pit professional success against personal survival in an increasingly uncertain and dangerous world.

FATHERLESS vividly imagines a future in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Fatherless


It’s curious that a man can spend a lifetime extolling the virtues of and giving tips on family, marriage, and child-rearing, but if he writes one dystopian fiction book, it’s his preferred art form because he somehow survives by spreading fear.
