Wendy Xanadu was a seeker of knowledge, just another pilgrim on a journey through life. Her friend Pete Astor was an all together more exotic beast. He believed that he had some knowledge and he sought confirmation. Yet he faced much the same problems in attempting to know the unknowable.
Over the forty-hill and making a good living out of the music business, Pete Astor's experiments with a mind-enhancing drug directed him down a life-path where he suddenly had lots of money and the chance to use it without becoming a prime target for spongers. He was an overnight success in a business that urges its brightest stars to burn brighter and brighter until they burn out.
As he rode his tide of good luck and fulfilled life-long dreams, Astor did so with a feeling that everything could be changed back, and worse, if he didn't play his cards right. Almost every time he took the drug charm, he was in touch with the source of his good fortune. But Astor was struggling to find the border between reality and his visions. And he felt that he needed to know whether his luck would hold with dangerous people out to get him, whether he was putting friends like Wendy at risk and just how far he could trust his guardian angel ... or demon.
