Adam inherited his mother Jem's curse. With a vengeance. When he stares into someone's eyes, he doesn't just see the date of their death, he feels the searing, shocking pain of it.
Orphaned, Adam has grown up by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But as rising tides flood the coast, they flee to London. The city is an alien, anarchic place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day.
What chaos awaits the world? Can Adam and his damaged friend Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?
