"Storytelling at its finest...beguiling!" -- Kirkus Reviews (starred) on The Drifter's Wheel

Fever Devilin is killed by an intruder. He doesn’t stay dead - thanks to an emergency medical team - but he does slip into a months-long coma.

As Fever struggles to recover, out there is a would-be killer who must be found while there's still time.
