When he woke up from so horrendous a dream the lifesaver realized that there was a frightening correlation between the dream and his reality. His wife urged him to go report to the police-that was the only logical thing to do in such circumstances. But how would she understand the monstrous course of events that she had unleashed. Like the witchdoctor's mirror, after the abracadabra that it was that it was, the mirror in their bedroom displayed his momentous encounter with the great state dispatcher whom he had just encountered for the fifth consecutive night in that horrendous dream. Moments later he took leave of his household, anoints his successor with oil and walks into the most difficult night of his life. Oklo is an idealistic young journalist whose infatuation with his co-worker Nana is simmering to the surface. But it is a most deadly infatuation, for she is also the object of fancy of so despicable a politician and businessman-a man for whom her kind is just another collectible to be had. There is a most abominable link between the lifesaver, the victim of the second murder and the object of Oklo's infatuation, which slowly unravels. Meanwhile Oklo's rendezvous brings forth a monstrous part of him that is at variance, and engages in this momentous battle with his true soul-the soul he had always known to be his.
