Religiöser Fanatismus hält Einzug in die Vereinigten Staaten: Die Moralmiliz hat die Polizei ersetzt; wer gegen ihre strengen Statuten verstößt, dem stehen Haft, Prozess und weitaus Schlimmeres bevor. Die 17-jährige Ember hat deshalb ein Leben in Deckung gewählt – doch trotz aller Schutzmaßnahmen wird plötzlich ihre Mutter verhaftet. Sie hat gegen Artikel 5 der Moralstatuten verstoßen, weil sie nicht mit Embers Vater verheiratet war. Und der Soldat, der ihre Mutter nun festnimmt, ist niemand anderes als Embers große Liebe, Chase. Ein Käfig aus Hass, Gewalt und fanatischer Moralvorstellungen schließt sich um Ember, die alles dafür tun muss, um sowohl ihre Mutter zu retten als auch den Mann, den sie liebt – und der ihr Feind geworden ist.

New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., have been abandoned. The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes. There are no more police—instead, there are soldiers. There are no more fines for bad behavior—instead, there are arrests, trials, and maybe worse. People who get arrested usually don't come back. Seventeen-year-old Ember Miller is old enough to remember that things weren't always this way. Living with her rebellious single mother, it's hard for her to forget that people weren't always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. It's hard to forget that life in the United States used to be different. Ember has perfected the art of keeping a low profile. She knows how to get the things she needs, like food stamps and hand-me-down clothes, and how to pass the random home inspections by the military. Her life is as close to peaceful as circumstances allow. That is, until her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. And one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings...the only boy Ember has ever loved.

Kristen Simmons gelang mit "Artikel 5" eine erschreckend reale Zukunftsvision. Ihre Heldin Ember konnte aus der Haft der teuflischen Moralmiliz entkommen - doch als erneut nach ihr gefahndet wird, ist klar, dass Ember verraten wurde. Denn wie sonst kann eine Totgeglaubte zum Staatsfeind Nummer 1 werden? Die Regierung hat Ember und Chase für tot erklärt - endlich sind sie frei und schließen sich dem Widerstand an. Doch im Lager der Rebellen herrscht Aufregung: Der geheimnisvolle "Heckenschütze" erschüttert mit seinen Anschlägen die Moralmiliz. Wer ist er? Steht der aufseiten der Rebellen? Wird er dem Widerstand zum Durchbruch verhelfen? Um den Attentäter zu fassen, veröffentlicht das FBR eine Fahndungsliste - und zu den Hauptverdächtigen gehört Ember. Mit dem Wissen, von ihren neuen Freunden verraten worden zu sein, muss Ember eine Entscheidung treffen: Wird sie sich ihr Leben lang im Untergrund verstecken oder für ihre Freiheit kämpfen?

"Dr. Gao finds the best provisions and practices in respect of the fraud rule in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, and applies these standards to the reformulation of the fraud rule in the PRC. In the process be surveys the entire field of the fraud rule in the law of letters of credit in its substantive aspects, thus going deeper than mere banking law analyses and revealing, for the benefit of jurists everywhere, the fundamental legal issues that must underlie all sound judicial reasoning in the area. In more practical terms, this approach also allows judges to meet their essential responsibility - that of giving an answer when a case is put before them - with the widest and best possible degree of discernment."--BOOK JACKET.
