From the Publisher:
San Francisco in the sixties is already crazy when mysterious shafts of blue light touch the lives of random strangers: Chance, a suicidal grad student who needs a history to chronicle... Orde, a scam artist turned prophet... Claudia Heart, housewife, swinger, and free-love goddess... Winch Fargo, a violent junkie driven mad by truth... and Alacrity, a little girl growing up very, very fast. They may have come from different places, but now they're all on the same trip - because under blue light nothing looks the same...
