In the year 2050, world government has arrived. Countries still retain their presidents and prime ministers as a sop to the old democracy, but all the major decisions are made by the World Governing Council's Committee of ElderWisemen, acting under the direction of the all-powerful President, Hobin Stern.

Law and order is a major problem that's getting worse, and even threatening the security of the chosen few. The death penalty is no longer a deterrent to those who would commit acts of terrorism, murder, paedophilia, rape and treason. As a result of major technological advances, carried out in the secrecy of their own laboratories, the WGC announce that the traditional death penalty is to be abolished and replaced with what is known as Animated Death.

Folk hero Robin Hood and his brothers-in-arms are the new system's first victims. While the world looks on in awe, Hobin Stern seems to be taking more than a passing interest...

I found this book to be an incredible read and most engaging. It is a great story line that is different from any I have read and I really enjoyed it. There is loyalty, betrayal, suspense and the search for justice. The emotions are deep and I felt all of them. The future of punishment for most crimes becomes “animated death", offenders put into virtual reality where it is live or die. The world watches and as events unfolds, the true power of human nature takes over and the end results are outstanding. It has extremely strong characters that make the story real and pulls you into it. John is the hero and his strength and guidance are respected. The relationship with him and Jennifer is touching and had me cheering. The details are raw and graphic and fit the story perfectly and made me want to see this made into a movie. I do hope there is a sequel to this book. It is very well written and has an easy flow and ended way too soon. I am intrigued by this author, Giovanni Gambino. His mind and imagination are amazing and I would love to read more from him. His talent for writing is clear, as is his love and passion. I will definitely be in search of his other books and have a feeling he will become a new favorite author of mine. I highly recommend this book to everyone, it is intense and a great read. I loved it.
