It's Rob's first day on his new job. On the way to work, he sees a student throw herself under a subway train. Acting on impulse, he picks up the file she dropped as she jumped. Over the next few days, he's witness to other disturbing events, some more serious than others. From each one he takes a "souvenir." As his behavior becomes increasingly obsessive, he crosses the line between witnessing disasters and seeking them out. Then events begin to spiral out of control….
Stylistically bold and technically accomplished, this page-turner explores the anxieties and survival strategies of a post-9/11 world.
