Days ago, Trent awoke with no memory of his past. Since then, sinister men have pursued him constantly. He manages to stay one step ahead of them by following the advice of his hand. Made of glass and apparently capable of speech, Trent's hand can answer many of his questions. But it cannot tell him who he is or why his enemies seek him until he finds all of its fingers. The only trouble is that they're in the hands of his enemies.
Did You Know?
The glass hand tells Trent that the future Earth has been contaminated with a radioactive substance that has a 99-year half-life, and that the radiation will dissipate within 200 years. This is a complete misunderstanding of the nature of radioactive decay. Half of a radioactive substance will decay in the time period called a half-life. When another half-life passes, half of the remaining substance will decay, and so on. It would take many millennia for a substance with a 99-year half-life to decay to the point of being virtually radiation-free. See more
I was born ten days ago. A full grown man, born ten days ago. I woke on a street of this city. I don't know who I am, or where I've been, or where I'm going. Someone wiped my memories clean. And they tracked me down, and tried to kill me. Why? Who are you? I ran. I managed to escape them the first time. And the hand, my - hand, told me what to do.
