“You’re still alive until you meet The Third Rule.”

New Rules. Old Corruption.
In an England where a new government comes to power on a wave of atrocities, truth and justice are executed as freely as the criminals, using a strict code of punishment designed to combat crime, called The Rules. But with their foundation based on corruption, it’s not only the criminals who fear their introduction; The Rules push boundaries too far, and though described as infallible, they are far from perfect.
A Rule Three conviction earns you a trip to the ‘slaughterhouse’ and a bullet in the head. And sometimes, you don’t even need to be guilty.

The government’s stance on crime endangers innocent people too. One of those innocent people is Christian Ledger, a burglar but also a talented artist, who is robbed and beaten. He survives only to be arrested and charged with a fatal stabbing. Christian is heading for the slaughterhouse because no one will listen; certainly not the police who just scored another hit. But he carries a secret. Is it enough to save his life?

Violent CSI Eddie Collins, a reluctant hero who tried to kill himself, suddenly wants to live when the police hunt him for shooting a colleague. What he and his friend, reporter Mick Lyndon find out puts them in danger, but they’ll never make it to the slaughterhouse because a government killer is right behind them. Can they survive long enough to expose the shocking truth?

“If you want to kill serious crime, you have to kill serious criminals.”
Sir George Deacon, Minster of Justice.
