A heart-rending, thought-provoking tale of doomed romance.
A world where justice and the fate of those accused of murder is decided by the public, but has moved on from the Roman Gladiator 'thumbs up or thumbs down' public vote, to a public vote by telephone. If you are voted innocent you are set free; if you are voted guilty you are committed to death by electric chair. Those awaiting their sentence reside in ever decreasing cells, getting smaller each day, until Day Seven and Cell Seven, where they hear their fate.
Sixteen-year-old Martha has confessed to killing a famous celebrity. But has she done it? And if not, why has she claimed the murder? Perhaps she wants to show up the flawed and brutal system by sacrificing herself in the hope of a better world.... Or perhaps she is protecting somebody else....

"This powerful thriller oozes suspense and offers a sharp satire on media and celebrity." (Bookseller)
I thought this had a great story line and the ending was amazing can't wait for the next one. This would mate a fantastic film set in the future and really makes you think could this really happen.
