21 24 is a wild ride and a dangerous read, taking your mind to places it may not want to visit. It will give you guilty pleasures and challenge your values. It peels open the unsavoury layers of the human animal and questions the justice of locking up the all too real monsters who live among us. Officer Katrina Hyke answers a 911 call and is confronted by a horror that changes her life forever.

When yet another criminal receives a meagre sentence for a heinous crime, her frustration boils over. The lack of punishment for the horrendous deaths of innocent people needs to stop. Her quest for true justice eventually takes her down her own dark path: one she may not be able to come back from, one she discovers she enjoys.

"21:24 is a page burner and page turner, and refreshingly unrestrained when it needs to be. Authors Critchell & Hughes shine a brutally unflinching light on the subject of crime and punishment, and in the process reveal something about the darkness that can be found in the soul of the human animal. It reminds us that when you stare into the abyss, the abyss also stares into you." - Steve Johnston, author of the movies Ed Gein, Ted Bundy and The Hillside Strangler.
