Frank Armstrong va a morir. Pronto. El mismo día en que le es diagnosticado un cáncer cerebral incurable, Frank recibe una oferta de trabajo: encontrar a la hija desaparecida de un mafioso y traerla de vuelta a su padre. Una misión que se convertirá en una carrera llena de confusión a causa de los síntomas provocados por el tumor, pero también en su última oportunidad de redención. Joshua Hale Fialkov y Noel Tuazon renuevan el género negro con una historia de ritmo trepidante y grandes dosis de intriga que te enganchará desde la primera página.
