In the City, a thriving metropolis encompassing a third of a billion souls, a man can change his world as easily as crossing the street. It is a place of a million cultures, the world in microcosm.

His health is failing, his job is on the line, his world is crumbling around him. He wants out, and the street is his only escape. What happens when the life you dreamt of is killing you? What do you do when you find yourself Hijacked? First Serialized on Colbyjack.net.
