In a world steeped in darkness, a new breed of evil has fallen...
London's ruined economy has pushed everyone to the breaking point, and even the police rely on bribes and deals with criminals to survive.

A gang hit goes wrong, leaving two schoolboys dead, and a serial killer calling himself the Man of Flies leaves a message on his victims saying "nothing is sacred."
