Loner Timothy Wilshire is rounding out his fourth year of college in Chicago, and he still doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. Potential for adventure and excitement pops up at times, but when should he take the plunge? Perhaps a romance with the assertive art student would open up some doors? Or what about the girl who secretly admires him from afar? Once the cigarette smoke clears and the drunken escapades cease, college life amounts to a countless stream of selfish acts in which Timothy hasn't really found what he is looking for. Until he meets the mysterious nightclub owner, Mr. Abdul...
Timothy is a creature of habit, but his world is about to be cast into disarray when Mr. Abdul hires him as a courier and gives him a curious package to deliver to a contact in Paris. Now Timothy has all the adventure he could possibly want--glamorous parties, flights to exotic cities, interesting new people. But it all comes crashing down as Timothy hustles to stay alive in a world of espionage and murder from Paris to Mumbai.
A precious, broken tsuba from a Japanese fighting sword, intended as a gift between partners in crime but clumsily dropped to the ground, sets the tone for this thriller of happenstance, in an urban landscape with thoughtful musings on approaching life, love and adventure.
