Publisher's Summary

The future story of United States Internment Camps...of the dreams of the pre-deceased...and of triumph over oblivion.It's 2020, and an attempted cure for AIDS has mutated into a deadlier disease, V-CIDS. The United States, under martial law, has set up "quarantine centers" in the Southwest. Searching for his gay son, Jon, media mogul Michael Barris smuggles himself into one of the centers, only to discover that it and the other centers are actually extermination camps. With a strange assortment of allies, including the leader of the camp's gay barracks, an Army officer, and a local cowboy, Barris precipitates an inmates' rebellion that promises the unraveling of the death-camp system and the overthrow of the government that established it.

Horrible Background Noises

I can't comment on the actual story as I had to stop reading about 10 minutes in. The constant ringings and buzzings in the background gave me a migraine. -.-
