The Code
by Nick Thripp

Find out what happens when:

- Three schoolboys engage in a power struggle which leaves one of them, the ambitious and ruthless John Beart, with a deep grudge against the other two and a well-concealed desire to get even

- One of them, the Narrator, secretly besotted with Beart’s mother, embarks on a clandestine liaison with her, running the risk of arousing her son’s deep jealousy

- The Narrator finds himself trapped by Beart in a one-sided and abusive business relationship

- Rachel and Suzie, sisters riven by sibling rivalry, complicate the already complex and emotionally-charged interactions between the three former schoolboys

- Revenge spirals destructively, seemingly with no way out
