Summary

A terrifically funny tale about a hapless lawyer who encounters a profusion of eccentric characters on a madcap journey that will see him tasked with saving the world.

Quentin, through no fault of his own, loses his home, his business and the only woman in his life... actually, it's entirely his own fault. He's a slacker. But no more! After briefly turning to crime, Quentin sets out to reverse his fortunes and becomes entangled in a Web of Machinations that includes a tramp suffering from Morgellons (those itchy, itchy Morgellons), a sinister group of computer hackers, a Tibetan boy claiming to be the Chosen One, a mysterious blonde woman and a duck called Stalin. Quentin may have set out to save his home, but now finds himself tasked with saving the world.
