Henry Kyllo is a member of a secret society called the Inferne Cutis. A Runner whose goal is to achieve full-body lead content.
He is chased through the city every day by Hunters whose goal is to shoot the Runners - with the threat to both sides that if they do not participate, through a mysterious force no one understands, one of their loved ones will simply vanish from the face of the earth.
Rumours abound about what happens when a Runner achieves ‘ascension’, but it has supposedly never happened before, so no one knows for sure. Except that it has happened before. And it is happening again.
