We're born with a finite number of opportunities.
Attrition, bad choices, misspent goodwill, and fucked-up
luck. The opportunities dwindle through a process called
living. Our portfolio of prospects turns into a tattered
novel of outcomes.
I am twenty-two.
Orphaned by a brutal car crash, a young man lives with no
plans for the future. Leaving his small town of Windstop,
Iowa, he finds his way to Seattle, where he ends up broke
and sleeping in a homeless shelter. There he meets Ray-Ray,
an Iranian with a shadowy past, who inducts him into a
criminal underworld. When Ray-Ray disappears, the young man
is left to fend for himself through carrying out clandestine
drops for cash from an anonymous source. At first, it's
perfect: living without the responsibilities of a real job
or a proper home. But then the scope of his travels widens
to Europe, Brazil, and China, leading him deep into a
conflict of international proportion.
Soon, he finds himself targeted for death, but from whom or
for what reason, he's not sure. The only thing that he's
sure of is that if he wants to survive, he needs a plan—now.
Because at noon, they're coming to kill him.
