Annihilation meets The Last Policeman in a high-concept speculative thriller set in a world in which you can learn the exact moment of your death–for a price.
Our unnamed narrator is the most talented death predictor at Dare to Know, a prestigious company in the death-prediction business. But while he has mastered the art of death, the rest of his life is an abject failure. On the day we meet him, he is driven by a near-death experience to violate the cardinal rule of death prediction by forecasting his own death day. The problem: apparently he died 23 minutes ago.
His death prediction model is never wrong, which means our narrator's life is a violation of nature—and could have widespread consequences. The only person who can truly confirm his prediction is the woman he loved and lost during his rise up the ranks of Dare to Know. She is the only person who has predicted his death before, which remain hidden in a sealed envelope in her possession. As he travels across the country to see her, our narrator is forced to confront his own past, the choices he's made, and the terrifying truth about his fate.
