A near-future dystopian novel that examines themes of inequality, poverty and the cycle of criminality, whilst simultaneously shining an uncomfortable light on our obsession with the macabre and sadistic.

‘Twelve inmates, one chamber. It’s time to face justice, live!’
Saturday night – primetime. The nation settles down to watch a special edition of Justice Live – the most popular, and sadistic, reality show ever made. Twelve of the country’s most notorious criminals are paraded in front of the cameras as the public vote to decide which one will face the horrors of the justice chamber. But correctional officer Cal Roberts has bigger things on his mind. Tonight, he plans to bring down celebrity guard Dax Miller, for good. Tonight, is his chance to put things right, once and for all.
