The Mojave desert stretches approximately 25,000 miles, encompassing significant parts of what used to be known as California and Nevada. Now that the water has run out, it’s a wasteland once more. Towns and cities were abandoned as millions had no choice but to flee the desert southwest in a migration unparalleled in American history.

One scientist may hold the key to solving this hydro-disaster, but he disappeared during the chaos of this exodus—leaving his wife desolate and wondering whether or not she is a widow. Marooned in a land she no longer recognizes, Annie Lin resolves to stop at nothing until she finds out what happened to her husband, even if it means entering into a devil’s bargain with agents of a foreign government to do so.
