Ram Carnes was told he had 24 hours to live.
That was over seven hours ago.
As he’d say, “Any way you crunch those numbers, they don’t add up too good for me.”
Before Ram got his own death notice in the first volume, he was a just a low-level process server, a reaper, for the Death Notification Agency—the DNA—now the biggest government organization in the world thanks to a mystifying, highly-guarded technology known as The Machine that can determine the time of anyone's demise, right down to the minute.
But now Ram’s the one whose life about to go belly up, and as everyone knows, The Machine is never wrong when it comes to predicting deaths.
But maybe it is this time.
At least that’s what Ram’s hoping after discovering that his boss in District 598.4A—Hollywood, Florida—was scheming to game the system by offering up Ram’s life instead of his own, along with a handsome bribe, to the shadowy figurehead of the DNA… Moirai.
Volume Two: The Gauntlet picks up right where the electrifying first volume (The Reaper) of the six-part DNA series left off—with Ram heading out for New York City to confront the mysterious Moirai and get to the bottom of this unraveling conspiracy before his clock runs out…
But this time, Ram’s not going at it alone. He’s got an angel riding with him in the form of Camille, Mr. Dukes’ receptionist turned unlikely sidekick. But even with Camille’s help, the next few hours are about to get a whole lot worse for Ram Carnes on this desperate crusade to save his own skin.
Julian Oliver Meiojas's DNA series, illustrated by Mad Dog Jones, hurtles forward into another adrenaline-fueled, hardboiled hellride from NeoText, inspired by the classic illustrated novels of the golden age of action-adventure science fiction.
