Caught in the middle is Lee Atwater, who is tasked with investigating a string of bizarre incidents connected to the Economic Forum. His journey introduces him to "the disaffected but affectionate": groups like CARP (Coalition Against Rapacious Profiteering); The Mals, who fetishize style to protect their substance; and The Band, worshippers of conflict and violence in the purest sense. The more time Lee spends with these remarkable and frightening people, the more his own seemingly directionless life comes into focus.
