From his prison cell, Armand Dillon designs a plot to defeat his enemies and regain his prominence as the President and CEO of TCP Corporation. He solicits the help of the only convicts who will be out on parole shortly. They are a strange lot, unreliable, flawed, but apparently willing to do his bidding for a price.
The other characters in this third book of a trilogy are a mixture of imperfect but developing humans at various crossroads in their lives. Lucinda is considering a new career, Stu and Bennet are very likely to betray Armand, and Shaman Pi is given a task he is barely capable of executing.
Rachel, the long-suffering ex-wife of Armand Dillon is having mysterious spiritual experiences that test her sanity and her beliefs. Through study and meditation, she is approaching initiation and lives through her own crisis at the threshold. Waldorf education, Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy move into the current mainstream of human experience.
The real heroin is Emily, the nine-year-old girl who demonstrates the most remarkable courage and discernment in facing her greatest challenge. Partly due to her, all these twelve characters take steps in their development as appropriate for their individual destinies. This is fiction, but reality fiction.
