Steven is an amazing character because he is not clearly good or evil, but rather deeply conflicted. He finds himself in the middle of a brewing civil war between the poor Americans and the Originalists. As a reader, it was hard for me to place my sympathy squarely on Steven's shoulders. Steven is likeable but also violent and worrisome. It is unclear exactly who to trust. This is materful writing at its best.
I strongly urge you to buy this book and others by a first rate author -- Mr. Jeff Altabef. You will be glad that you purchased this gem.
Steve, finds himself unwillingly satisfying his inner demons while battling a future America gone terribly wrong. Crime is rampant and greed is the cause. The Oligarchs are a powerful entity that control America, their greed insatiable. Mr. Cabbot finds himself in a bind, searching for information and a way to stop them, thereby ending a violent battle in the ghetto in which he resides.
Steve is obviously struggling to find his own identity, his place in this world. With a tragic childhood behind him, Steve Cabbot finds himself with a skills and street smarts to not only survive, but take on this capitalist society gone wrong.
The story has the just right amount of action, humor and character development. For something this short, it's inevitable to be astonished by the amount of content it delivers. From a protagonist that has the mind almost as sharp as Sherlock in heated situations to cleverly written events that keep you entertained throughout the story, Jeff Altabef does a really good job Enemies of the State. What's truly interesting for this short story is how the actions of Steven Cabbott can solely give a lot of information on the character himself instead of wasting words to portray him. This is definitely an element authors tend to neglect, but not Jeff Altabef. The plot has enough juice to remind you of a well-rounded tale that could be just as entertaining, if not more, than an Mission Impossible movie. It even managed to crack a little giggle out of me at some point in the story. That says a lot, for a short story.
Like most readers might say, this short story doesn't escape the need of a novel. A full length novel. This could definitely give readers the opportunity to plunge into this universe and enjoy the action packed story. Hopefully Jeff Altabef has other projects in store for readers.

This is a short story, but oh my goodness it is jam packed with content and action. The hero is trying to turn away from the demons that possess him and live a life closer to the good guys instead of the bad guys. It is something to watch him fight these demons. This story is well written. The author lets the story show you the background instead of telling you. This keeps the story moving at a good pace. I recommend this story to everyone.
