Blink, man, what were you thinking? Sneaking into the hotel for a hot breakfast — hot scraps of someone else’s breakfast, really. Couldn’t you just feel that it was a wrong place/wrong time scenario? Even before you heard the banging and saw those dudes in suits jet it out of room 1616? Now you’re not only witness to a crime; you’re linked to it, thanks to the smartphone you were stupid enough to jack from the room.
And then there’s Caution. As in “Caution: Contents Under Pressure.” She’s also on the run, from a skeezy drug-dealer boyfriend and from a nightmare in her past that won’t let her go. The last thing she needs right now is some skinny-ass street punk spouting crazy conspiracy theories, but something about Blink tugs at her heart — a heart she thought deserved not to feel.

Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever
