Natural selection has become unnatural. Having dealt with the vicious murder of his wife, Edward Caine takes his rightful place as a One-Percenter, eliminating those not fit for the human race. He must fight his instinct to use his role for revenge; he is after those who live on only because of money and medicine. The weak-gened are not fit to breed, and it’s the job of Edward and his brethren to see that they don’t. But can he finish the job before his own mind betrays him? He is an agent of the Earth. He is a One-Percenter.

My Thoughts

The One Percenters is a twisted fantasy some might think about from time to time. Is there such thing as natural selection? Do we have a right to select good genes from those we think are bad? Is there a perfect human race?

This story was incredibly intriguing and one of the very few psychological thrillers I’ve read over the years. Not necessarily a genre I would go to but I am glad I chose to read this one.

Edward endures the horrific life of a widow, guilt plaguing him day & night. The choices he makes for himself are not the best and he decides to take the life of his girlfriend. Things really change for Edward and he take on a new life. A life where he decides who should live or die based on good or bad genes.

There were many grammatical errors in my Ebook but this did not prevent me from enjoying it. I highly recommend this book if you like stories that have many twists and are not as they seem. There is vulgar language throughout, so if you take issue with that, this might not be the book for you.

I highly recommend this book!
