Larson Lee is a comic book artist. He dies in a freak accident involving a 40 year old lorry, several tins of industrial paint, and three rolls of newsprint paper. He leaves his son, Brett, a small house, no money and the rights to his comic book characters. Unfortunately for Brett, these characters already have something of a history in the real world, especially in the areas of bank robbery and murder. Brett is not really equipped to deal with all this mayhem, preferring to spend his time trying to get off with Celia, who he hopes will soon be the new love of his life. A black comedy, fantasy, love story with no end of violence, and some interesting thoughts about quantum theory and parallel universes thrown in for good measure. The only question left is the identity of the mysterious and beautiful Delphine....
