Imagine Anne Rice being
trampled by the cast of Are you being Served?
Joelle Lachance works with the terminally banal. That is, she
runs the Health Food Shop at Weatherstons Department
Store. Patriarchy, incompetence, lowbrow politics? All in a
day's work–until Maximillien Lambert darkens her door.
Max is tall, pale, and colder than burial ground in January. He
owns Weatherstons' new Cyber Café, but he's far more
interested in Joelle than he is in hard drives. When Joelle
starts having nightmares, she's sure Max has something to do
with it. Hardware Manager Geraint McKellar is suspicious, too:
why is Max offering meditation lessons to Weatherson staff?
After all, the guy's more like the Grim Reaper's better-dressed
brother than Mahatma Gandhi...
