The story itself is set about six years after the Ruby in the Smoke, but this time Sally investigates the loss of money of one of her clients. Her client lost her money by investing it in a company called North Star Holdings. There would be nothing strange about this except, that it seems to be set up to purposefully to make investors lose their money. She finds out that the whole plot seems to be revolving around the owner of this company and his diabolical plan. He intends to use a weapon he made that is not intended to fight against enemies, but is designed for rulers to fight their own people...

After finishing Paper Towns, I decided to buy all the John Green books I could find in nearby bookstores.The story is about Quentin, who loves the very adventurous and popular Margo Roth Spiegelman. They used to be childhood friends, while now they don't even talk to each other, since they (after years and years) grow apart. The story also shows that there is a very thin line, between bravery and stupidity and it is not meant to be crossed (like it was often by Margo). Margo seems like a very decent heroine, and I wasn't disappointed with her at the start of the book at all. (SPOILER! I hate her at the end of the book of reasons obvious to anyone who read Paper Towns…) Another problem, was that Margo was supposed to dramatically change throughout the book, after Q finds clues about what she really is like. The problem was, (maybe it is just me) she did not change at all. From the start of the book we know she is quirky, and adventurous, sometimes doing regretful things. To me it seems like, the author is basically highlighting something already obvious in big bold letters. It was however gripping, and I didn’t get tired of the plot at all.
