Anyone who enjoyed David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas or was gripped by the film Inception will love this bravura and mind-bending novel in which we are taken deep into the mystery of who killed the enigmatic rock star Luce - if, indeed she really died ...The story begins at a secret gig by the most famous unknown band in the world, and follows its unnamed narrator across decades and continents from psychedelic London to the wild deserts of Nevada, from the back streets of Haight-Ashbury to the snowy wastes of the Himalayas, from a secluded English country house to New York, Paris and Japan, pursued by unknown forces. Are they demons or the police? Agents of mysterious powers or figments of a powerful imagination? Who is pawn and who is player? Murderer or victim? Betrayer or saviour? And now, forty years later, who sits alone in a room with only memories and strange echoes of the past - prisoner, inmate or guest? Nothing is certain, except that the quest for the truth about Luce will leave no one in its path untouched.
