In a small religious community rocked by a spree of shocking murders, Detectives Salvi Brentt and Mitch Grenville find themselves surrounded by suspects. The Children of Christ have a tight grip ontheir people, and the Solme Complex neurally edit violent criminals - Subjugates - into placid servants called Serenes. In a town where purity and sin, temptation and repression live side by side, everyone has a motive. But as the bodies mount up, the frustrated detectives begin to crack under the pressure: their demons are coming to light, and who knows where that blurred line between man andmonster truly lies.

Reviews for The Subjugate

Part traditional police procedural, part exploration of redemption and the possibility of change, The Subjugate cleverly and apparently effortlessly builds a future world that is both engaging and utterly terrifying. An intelligent, believable future wrapped around an intriguing mystery. The Wire meets Blade Runner in this enthralling near-future crime thriller. This hard-boiled near-future SF thriller moves quickly and presents some thought-provoking ideas. A compelling seat-of-the-pants murder mystery and a fascinating inquiry into good and evil.
