The story is set twenty or thirty years in the future when the gap between rich and poor has become a chasm.

Anger and resentment towards the rich has turned to outright hatred and a multi national terrorist group - the Movement - believe the time has come for World revolution. The Movement is well funded (through stock market manipulation) able to operate throughout the World and totally ruthless.

To make matters worse, a break away group emerges that appears hell bent on increasing the level of violence, atrocities and bloodshed. Into this desperate situation comes a spiritual leader, Russell Morgan, from Croydon of all places. His message is that we must all help each other for “ if the human race and all it has ever created, disappeared tomorrow, who would miss us ?” Many believe he is the new Messiah - others that he is an absolute fake.

The story is told from the perspective of one Keith Cole an investment analyst working in what remains of the Canadian financial industry. He must cope with a chaotic World where terrorist threats are ever present, insects have become part of the staple diet and many people have more sex with robots than other human beings. Yet he is still expected to advise money managers on investment decisions. Like everyone else, he could do with a Saviour.
