The truth of the Value System is too outrageous to believe.
Lawrence has won the support of the Shellingfield clan to attack the Value System. But first, he has to prove to the world it’s as evil as he claims. He must get living evidence.
As the first tribune of the Protectorate, Nightminster has tasted power. It’s a taste he likes. He has every intention of getting more of it. His alliance with the Krossington clan makes him a formidable force. He’s going to purge the Value System and have Bishop Donald Aldingford indicted for the murder of Julius Shellingfield. He’ll win the support of the glory trusts by putting Sarah-Kelly Newman on trial for mass-murder.
With no enemies left, what can stop him achieving supreme power?
