29 hours to survive.
29 hours to take revenge.
29 hours to thwart a criminal plan.
29 hours of live terror.

New York, now. Veronika Evans is a photojournalist who portrays the social outcasts of big cities. Her shocking photos get millions of visualizations a day, tens of thousands of tweets an hour: an immense public of followers in which anyone could be hidden.

Barbara Shiller is a NYPD profiler who tackles every homicide case with the fury of someone who has to atone for a tragic error of judgement. Surrounded by men, she would like to make them forget her beauty. Then there is an episode of an Emmy award winning talk show that went on air the year before, and it seems that all the guests are candidates for a death as theatrical as it is atrocious. The first suspects for that macabre sequence of homicides are the show’s guests that are still alive. Among them are Veronika, her competitor Derek Crane, a war correspondent who has disappeared and the presenter of the talk show. The clues come hard and fast, but without leading to a motive. 29 hours in countdown: in an escalation of violence and terror the shadow emerges of a Director with an incredible strategy for homicide that will be a new page in the history of crime.
