**A Paid Story**


At noon, disasters sweep the planet. A long-awaited consequence of human wrongdoing - people have tried, but there is no turning back.

For taxi driver Isabel Ridley, trying to escape the apocalypse isn't the priority. Escaping the recurring nightmare is. She relives her last day on Earth over and over, from 6:41 to noon, and remembers everything.

Cursed with a twisted immortality, Isabel looks for ways to change the inevitable. Every modification to her day brings clues that don't add up. A failed space mission, a cover-up, and a light outside her window take her further from her routine, half a day at a time.

The world might stand a chance if she keeps dying.
