A gift from the stars crashes to Earth, ushering a golden age of human cooperation. The genetic secrets in the pods eradicate Cancer, HIV, even the common cold with a single pill. The jubilation is short lived when the horrific truth reveals itself. The cellular changes wrought by the treatment continue, and degenerate. Global efforts to halt the rapidly mutating victims fail. Breaking free, the creatures spread their contagion with teeth and claws; tearing, ravaging, devouring.
Raymond is one of life’s perpetual victims. Downtrodden. Bullied. Unable to rise above mediocrity. A nobody among nobodies.
Raymond’s London neighbourhood is a festering pit of evil, the unfortunate souls living there are little more than prisoners in their own homes. Thugs, rapists, murderers, all operating with near impunity against the innocents of the city. Drugs flow like water. Violence is rife. Disappearances are commonplace.
All that is about to change.
