Huckleberry "Huck" Linbergh is returning to the city of New Seattle after eight years. He's not quite sure why he's returning, nor really sure why he left in the first place. The intervening years have been drowned in a desperate and yet futile attempt to forget his past. But the past travels with us, and cannot be outrun. Of course, while people seldom change the fundamental core of who they are, the same cannot be said for places. New Seattle now has a zero tolerance policy on danger, and they're going to enforce it, no matter who gets hurt in the process.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Tim Scott's Outrageous Fortune marked the debut of one of the most wildly inventive writers to hit the sci-fi scene in years. Now he returns with a hilarious yet poignant novel of love, loss, and itinerant appliances.

"New Seattle Health and Safety. Do not die for no reason." This is the motto of a city so obsessed with the danger of sharp corners that it has almost forgotten how to live. But Huckleberry Lindbergh is about to find his trip to the city most decidedly unsafe. For a chance encounter leads him into the heart of a dark conspiracy. And in order to stop it, this former cop is about to do something so unsafe—so monumentally stupid—that its reverberations will be felt all the way to the Pentagon.

Soon he is on the run from more authorities than he has had hot meals, his staunchest allies a bunch of feral fridges that give new meaning to the words "chill out." But sometimes a dose of chaos is just what the doctor ordered, and Huck's quest to remain among the living teaches not only him but those around him the true meaning of survival . . . in all its forms.
