Human survivors on a hostile island; the battle for life and self respect; Darwinism on acid. The judge at the inquest into the deaths would describe their achievements as a monument to human... More > society; a tribute to the courage, team-work and intelligence which is the very fabric of civilisation. Malcolm could see the Judge’s logic, he wanted to see the Judge’s logic. He remembered the bow that Felippe had built, the ‘lizard killer’ as they had fondly labelled it. The awesome gaping genius of it and the way it had transformed both their situation and the way they saw themselves. They were impressive.

Every society has worshipped. Every society in history has had the overwhelming need to boast of its inferiority to something. The object worshipped has varied: the sun, the moon, imagined people,... More > dead people, mountains… but the basic act of worship has been a constant feature of civilised society. A cult arises amongst the decaying inner city housing estates.

To do this they need to suppress their instinct towards evil by feeling inferior to, as in worshipping, those rare people that are pure goodness, such as himself. A cult member is found savagely murdered. His picture is recognized by Jack, an unsuccessful lawyer with a casual ability at violence. Two years before the victim had persuaded his fiancée to join the cult. Finding an excuse to search for her but still carrying the humiliation caused by her departure, Jack attempts to enter the cult.< Less
