A young woman goes missing in London’s Soho during the Swinging Sixties. 50 years later, when Porter, his friends, and his spiritual guide, The Gliss, begin investigating, they uncover a wide-ranging international conspiracy.

Porter and the gang, who only just survived their first investigation, travel to London, LA and Europe in the search for the woman. Meanwhile, Porter’s psychic powers take more and more of a toll on his sanity and mood.

Witty, dark, and intensely plotted, this book is in turns comic, disturbing and chilling.
