A novel by

 
 
Putting corporate disregard for ecology on trial, this novel follows Vexcorp, a wealthy corporation that, at a safe distance, counts both the lives of others and the health of the environment as expenses on a balance sheet - but that distance is about to collapse. Malia is an activist who has lost faith in systemic reform, and Eddie is a street thug torn by grief at his younger sister's death. When Eddie mugs Malia, she compares him to Vexcorp, triggering a storm inside him. That storm only clears when he identifies the real agent of his pain: Larry Gordon, Vexcorp's CEO. Injury requires justice, so Eddie kidnaps Gordon, and presents him to Malia for judgment. As bystanders become involved and time runs out, Malia is forced to make grueling moral decisions between survival and loyalty, safety and courage, agency and despair.
