When David Potter was finally hired as a publicity writer for the Ilium Works, a story was already waiting for him: a deer somehow got loose in the Works. But the confusion of endless buildings, the faceless people and the elusiveness of the deer made David’s search fruitless … until he saw a mob chasing the frightened deer. Suddenly, David opened the gate leading to a nearby wood. The deer bolted out … and David Potter followed. He didn’t look back.
