Hex Spencer has a lot on her mind and to top it off she just landed the biggest slick of her career. She has to run a suitcase full of eyeballs round-trip from the Hawk's Nest to a Tiffany-class tech company in District 04, a city district. But, this slick is just what she's been looking for, a big one with a big payday. She's counting on this job to cover her mother's relentless hospital bills and give her a springboard out of the slicking game.
Book two jumps in one year before the District 8 protest bombing, before Hex has begun her Gatecrashing career. We land in the glass-clad towers of District 04, Palomar's Silicon Alley: home to some of the biggest corporations in the world and the most expensive real estate in Palomar City, if not the world.
