Seven Most Wanted Criminals of the No Go Zone
A new score of criminals rises in the headlines as Metro Police finally releases its long awaited Seven Most Wanted Criminals of the No Go Zone report.
The current Most Wanted list contains some shady characters and low lives that includes gang members, a mechanized bear, and a dangerous cultist leader. Every one of these outlaws is to be considered armed and dangerous.
This ranking is published every year to warn the public-at-large about the dangers of the underdeveloped slum on the other side of the separation barriers. The travel ban to the No Go Zone remains in place, and the borders are closed to unsupervised crossings.

James W Bodden
Publisher: Montag Press, January 2015.
Genre: Dystopian, Dark Fantasy
Hook: A low-level gang informant's clock is ticking as he tries to solve a series of copycat killings before the triads gives him up as a sacrifice in the dystopian slum's annual Night of the Clean Hands.
Everything goes on the Night of the Clean Hands. There are only three rules: Old debts are forgotten. Payback is forbidden. Killing is outlawed. But rules are meant to be broken.
Kai, a member of the dreaded 25’s, a local enforcement gang, jumps from the rooftops and glides over the streets to keep the population inside the slums under constant surveillance.
When a string of copycat murders disrupt the festivities of the Night of the Clean Hands, it falls to Kai to uncover the mystery behind the killings. Kai's journey deep into the underbelly of this urban jungle forces him to explore a lost city with unspoken rules, and unravel the secrets behind its devotion for the Red Light Princess.
