When Death goes on strike, some rejoice—while others await the return of his icy grip—in this dark fantasy novel from the author of Mountain Man.
In the dead of winter, on a highway in Quebec, a man crashes his car and survives. In New York, a homeless person is run over by a bus and lives. A teenager jumps off a high-rise building in Tokyo and fails in her attempt to take her own life. All around the world, miracles like these are taking place. Death seems to have taken a holiday, and humanity breathes a sigh of relief.
But over the course of the next week, some people will begin to suspect the terrible truth behind these marvels. A handful will even search it out. One man will find it. In seven days, all hell will break loose—and nothing, living or dead, can escape its fury.
