The Bad Element; takes its readers to a world where anyone can escape the burdens or mistakes of life by simply starting a new one. The characters in this world can begin a new life in a new body, while maintaining extensive memories of their past lives lived. The only problem is what the characters must do to achieve this memory transfer, which is astounding and frightening. To stop this activity, a global corporation has been put in place to control reincarnation abuses by monitoring and controlling births and deaths on the planet. This age-old practice by the company has transformed it into an overwhelming tyranny that has taken control of and reshaped mankind toward its own corporate ideals.
