The place: America. The time: not so very far in the future. Marijuana's legal and advertised on TV; politics are more screwed-up than ever; there's a black separatist state of Mississippi. Against this backdrop, Jack Barron, anarchic mass-media man and heroic womanizer, uncovers a conspiracy of evil cloaking a horrific secret. His choice is agonising. Should he throw in his lot with the conspiracy and gain the greatest prize anyone could hope for? Or should he use his power to blow the story open – and the world apart...?
