David Parker’s new start in LA isn’t going entirely as he had hoped. London feels a million miles away, and even his loving marriage is beginning to look shaky. Drawn, through an alcoholic haze, into the orbit of Astrid and her friends, he spends a night on Malibu Beach that shocks him to the core.

With the stakes suddenly raised, David must get his bearings: in love, in the city, and in a new century that seems to be imploding. Funny, deadly, and bristling with energy, this is the story of a man who loses life as he knows it – and sets out to find it again.
