    Description: The story takes place in a future where the world is covered by a new ice age. The seal hunter Essex and his wife arrive at a city where some survivors of the disaster live among technological artifacts in a primitive way. All people in the city have lost hope of surviving and the ice continuously threatens to destroy the city. When visiting a relative* Essex's wife is killed by a bomb. When he tries to uncover the reason why the entire family was killed* he learns that in their despair the survivors are playing a game of life and death called Quintet. Being alive is the only reward in this game* and none of the people involved can quite explain why they keep playing it. The game works this way: there is a list of names created by a referee* who may be consulted if the players are not sure of the rules. Some of the players will be allies* others will be enemies* which must be killed or they will kill you. Each player has a list of names of the people involved arranged in a certain order* which determines the friend/enemy scheme. When someone is killed* the person who was previously your ally will perhaps be a killer* so you have to learn who is still alive at any moment.
