Abstract:
Four and Nine are partners, working for the same company, sent without passports to a nation recovering from ten years of civil war. Operating under pseudonyms and anonymous to potential kidnappers, they are given a new machine, the RS-90, and tasked with building a highway that connects the country's far-flung villages with the capital. Four, nicknamed the Clock, never falls short of his assigned schedule. He drives the RS-90, stopping only to sleep and eat the food provided by the company. Nine is an agent of chaos: speeding in his vehicle, chatting with locals, eating at bars and roadside food stands, he threatens the schedule, breaks protocol, and endangers the work that they must complete in time for a planned government parade. When illness, corruption, and theft compromise their high-stakes mission, Four and Nine discover danger far greater than anything they could pose to each other. -- adapted from jacket of regular edition
