The Good Book

The Good Book


Fighting, football violence and watching video nasties are all favourite hobbies for Ross and his gang - oh, as well as reading the Bible, that is. But only the good bits, mind. Only the gore and destruction of the Old Testament. The rest's a load of rubbish isn't it?

Ross is King of the Judges; numero uno of the hard squad - and he's had his fair share of trouble. But when he finds himself attracted to Morgan, he knows he's in real trouble. Why? Only because she leads the local Youth Peace Mission . . .
