    Summary

    With two-hundred-sixty-seven wins in the Arena to his name, Armand Hammer is the only fighter in nearly twenty years to ever come close to earning his freedom. He's not about to let anything stop him now, especially not a scrawny new recruit with haunting green eyes and a mysterious past.

    Timothée doesn't know how he ended up in the Arena. He knows he didn't do anything to earn him a life sentence, and he would never have chosen the Arena as an alternative to a lifetime of servitude. He can only think of one reason for his predicament: someone wants him dead.

    Summary

    "The door's overhead bell chimed, alerting Benny of a new customer. But when he looked up he felt the warmth of the day in his chest crack.

    It was the Harrington's boy -- who couldn't be older than 12 -- struggling as he held the door open with his foot and he peeled off his dripping windbreaker and revealed his bag that was hidden in the zipped up jacket, trying his best to avoid bringing any of the rain inside."

    Summary

    "Where are you coming from?"

    "Uh, Chicago? Yeah, I was, uh. Crashing with my ex-girlfriend, but. She lives with this guy, now, and, uh. Like, I know him, too, um. Jonathan, but. He doesn't like me, 'cause we used to have some problems, so. It didn't really work out, in the end, and, uh—"

    "And you skipped town, late at night, but you don't know where you're going?" Max asks, as she toys with the remains of a paper straw wrapper. "I don't know, my guy. Your story sounds kinda spooky. You're, like, sure you're not a psycho?"

    The hitchhiker smiles again, shrugs again, stuffs a huge bite of hash browns into his mouth.

    He doesn't look like somebody who murdered his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend yesterday, but Billy's not a fucking expert.

    He hasn't met a lot of killers, or.

    He doesn't think he has.

    Summary

    Armie and Timmy are supposed to meet for brunch in London the night after the premiere of The King. Instead, Armie finds a very sick Timmy and has a mild freak out.

    In other words, Timmy is ridiculous when he's ill, and Armie is haunted by ghosts of February 2019.
