The world is on the brink of catastrophe. If we lose hope in a better future, what are we left with? A young man is shooting people from a rooftop in downtown Helsinki. An unsuspecting mother is confronted with a horrifying scenario she's powerless to stop. A sister can only watch events unfold from afar. Over the course of a day, one family fractures and with lives at stake each member must examine everything that brought them to this moment. But this crisis goes beyond their small lives; Aslak is not the only boy on a rooftop with a gun today. He is part of an international group set on stopping environmental disaster by killing as many of those they deem responsible as they can. Can a desperate mother reconcile her complicated feelings towards her son and reach him in time to stop a catastrophe? This is the story of the lives on the brink and finding hope in the face of despair.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hirvonen's strength [is] marrying personal family tragedies with huge global events. It can feel preachy at times, yet this novel is both extremely real and current, cutting to the heart of society like the best noir * Crime Fiction Lover *
its sparseness, simplicity and authentic feel to its characters' struggles make it very, very readable * Reactions To Reading *
