What people are saying about The Fifth Column…

Wake up!

Robert Corrado’s new novel, The Fifth Column, is a dark and richly-textured tale of an all-too-realistic, dystopian future; it warns of an Orwellian surveillance state policed by semi-autonomous drones and children that are indoctrinated through state-sponsored cartoons and video-games. It is through the eyes and lives of children, that Corrado presents his entertaining and frightening vision of this possible tomorrow. One doesn’t have to look further than the daily news to see that government gridlock, NSA data collection, and DARPA robotics projects are already propelling us down an uncertain path. The Fifth Column is more than a warning; it is a wakeup call. “Don’t Die a Slave." Buy this book.

Great story. I could not put it down. I had to go to work on three hours of sleep with blood shot eyes. It reminded me of my old neighborhood. Look forward to your next book.

A novel perspective on what could be to come.

The 5th Column was a refreshing perspective from not just the hardened adult, but the young and innocent. Be ready to encounter moral dilemma, suspense, and a riveting story based in a not-so-distant, possible future.

I couldn't put this book down, and can't wait for the next book!

Very engaging! I could really identify with the characters!

Great Book! I cried, I got angry, I laughed. At the beginning I was thinking this is what our country is coming to now. And that is a horrifying thought. Loved this book, I couldn't put it down!
