Our intrepid reporter (in training), Ashley Spencer, is set to finally break through the decades of secrecy surrounding the vast corporation run by the infamous McQueen family. Armed with information from an unexpectedly elderly thief-turned-bounty hunter, Crane, and an unexpectedly youthful crime reporter, Bailey Barton, and aided by the generally unexpected Dr. Emanuel Stieg, Ash is determined to uncover the secrets in their lives and the city.
With only seventeen days left, they're all running out of time: Can Ash discover the truth and reveal it without being killed? Will Crane survive the winter and the tests it brings? Can Stieg find a kill or cure? What does Bailey Barton really know, and whose side is he on anyway? Seventeen days left to live, or to die - what do you have to lose? Let the dice roll.
