About the Book

Life on the streets of Lima is already difficult for Julio, but now that digital money has replaced hard currency, survival is virtually impossible. Isak comes to his rescue and offers him a chance at a better life through a hi-tech humanitarian program. The only catch is a microchip implanted between the thumb and forefinger of the hand. At first life improves dramatically, but when another participant dies mysteriously, Julio suspects that the chip does more than just dispense charity. Now he must uncover the truth behind the charity chip before someone else suffers the same fate.

About the Author

Brock Booher grew up on a farm in rural Kentucky, the fourth of 10 children, where he learned to work hard, use his imagination, and believe in himself. He graduated from Brigham Young University and served in the US Air Force flying the A-10, and as an Instructor Pilot in the T-37. He is a commercial pilot for a major US carrier. In addition to technical writing for the USAF, his essays have been published in local newspapers, and in Kentucky Monthly. “Charity Chip” is his second novel. He resides in Gilbert, Arizona, with his wife and has six children.

My Review:

Julio has promised his mother that he would take care of his younger twin brother Raul by providing food, shelter and clothes.  He starts to regret his promise to his mother when he finds out that Raul has been hanging out with the local gang in Lima.

Julio is a street performer but has trouble obtaining food and clothes because the citizens no longer use money.  Instead they have a chip implanted into their hand which they use to buy food, clothes or services they want.

Julio believes that the only way to provide a better life for him and his brother is to join an organization that gives street kids a chance to have an education and to have food.  Julio really believes in the program and is even skeptical even when a fellow participate/love interest tells him the program is a farce.  Two former participants have either died or disappeared and nothing else is heard of them after the owner and doctor takes them to a certain hospital.  Then a friend suddenly dies of an overdose?

As Julio investigates, he regrets even agreeing to become a participant in the organization.  What will he discover as he digs deeper?

I really felt for Julio because his brother Raul was a real piece of work but underneath all that both of them really love and care for each other.  I actually admired Raul for his sacrifice at the end to help Julio with his investigation.


Thanks Cedar Fort Publishing and Media for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
