Your Time Is Running Out...

In the future, every citizen will have an artificial expiration date. At birth a small hi-tech device, known as a SY-9 capsule, is implanted into every newborn's heart. When the citizen reaches the age of eighteen the SY-9 capsule is activated.  At a randomly determined time during their lifetime, the capsule will painlessly cause the host's death by releasing a small amount of cyanide into the bloodstream during their REM cycle of sleep. Population control is the objective of the SY-9 program in the United States. But when a popular presidential candidate who threatens the program turns up dead because of a conspicuously timed "expiration date," a conspiracy begins to unravel. Now, the last bit of evidence is in the hands of Dack Cutter who must expose the truth or die trying.
