Troy GriceTroy Grice has been a fan of dystopian novels and science fiction since his teens. He describes his own writing as “abrasive satire” and “counter-propaganda.” His fiction questions all forms of authority, mocks the establishment, and ridicules the semi-lucid populace that enables it.

INDIVISIBLE: WITH JUSTICE FOR SOME
America’s day of reckoning has come.
Triggered by a Japanese liquidity crisis, a global run on U.S. Treasuries overwhelms the Federal Reserve and collapses the dollar. Mass inflation sparks civil unrest and panic as store shelves are cleaned out, gas prices rise tenfold, and Americans’ life savings are wiped out. Desperate to maintain control, the federal government grows increasingly totalitarian. The president orders the Army home in an attempt to restore law and order, but the Army’s battle-hardened attitude and heavy-handed tactics only manage to spur the rebellion on.
The lives of a tormented soldier, a tyrannical sheriff, a vain diplomat and a desperate father converge amidst the chaos of total economic collapse and civil war in contemporary America.
"I'm happy to report that Grice's Indivisible is a book that, you should be warned, you'll likely read through in one sitting. Screw sleep.
The book centers on the coming financial collapse and four characters around that. One is a regular guy with nothing special about him. He's not in the patriot movement at all, not a survivalist or weapons expert, and has only a regular guy's worries about his wife and child. Another is a disturbed veteran soldier and his comrade in arms, whose beyond disturbed and into the psychotic. Finally, there's the lawman, an Under Sheriff who takes himself and his badge a little too seriously and his estranged wife, a Deputy of the U.S. Treasury.
The story weaves around these characters as the financial collapse hits America and the people slowly realize the end is nigh. Most of the action takes place around Denver, Colorado as the soldiers are brought home to quell the "rebellion" and bring order - usually amounting to the slaughter of civilians and mass desertions of both professional soldiers and National Guard.
Mostly, though, the story revolves around the everyman and his quest to get his family through the collapse intact. He is both helped and hindered along the way by the others in the story. He works to get through what he must do amidst gasoline shortages, food shortages, parasitic government employees, etc."
