Designed for Slaughter


Unveiling the Shadows: Justice, Secrets, and the Overlord's Will

In the modern industrial city of Dylath-Leen, ruled by enigmatic extra-dimensional Overlords, Inspector Lazarus Balthazar Nodens leads a squad of detectives in the Criminal Investigations Division. Their primary task? Investigating deaths attributed to either the merciless Ravagers or terrestrial culprits. But when a string of murders targeting identical women shakes the city, Inspector Larry Nodens finds himself caught in a perilous web of politics and secrecy.

Dylath-Leen is a place where the Overlords hold dominion, their hybrid offspring managing the day-to-day affairs of the government. The appearance and disappearance of both the Overlords and the Ravagers add an eerie layer of unpredictability to the city's landscape. Victims claimed by the Ravagers, known as Ravager Attributed Deaths (RADs), are reluctantly accepted as the Overlords' grim prerogative. Any other deaths fall under Larry's jurisdiction.

As Larry and his dedicated team dive into the investigation, they unearth a startling revelation—the murdered women possess a politically sensitive secret. Balancing the will of the Overlords and his commitment to upholding the law, Larry must tread a treacherous path where the line between justice and the desires of the ruling elite blurs.

In a city where truth is elusive and allegiances are tested, Larry Nodens finds himself entangled in a high-stakes game of power. As he uncovers hidden agendas and confronts the shadowy forces manipulating Dylath-Leen's destiny, Larry must make difficult choices that could alter the delicate balance between the Overlords and the human populace.

In "Designed for Slaughter," the fate of Dylath-Leen hangs in the balance as Inspector Larry Nodens walks the tightrope between fulfilling the Overlords' will and seeking justice for the victims. Will he uncover the truth behind the murders, or will he become entangled in a web of darkness, where secrets have dire consequences? The city's destiny and Larry's own soul hang in the balance as the threads of loyalty and deception entwine in a battle for control that spans dimensions.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
