He lives in a magnificent mansion surrounded by a sprawling hedge maze. He has everything a person could want in today’s world … but he is dying of cancer.

While examining the journals of the mansion’s previous owner, Neil learns how to contact a member of the Great Race of Yith, an ancient society of brilliant, monstrous beings. The Yithian offers what seems to be a high-tech solution to Neil’s problems, and the intrepid businessman decides to proceed with the creature’s plan. Along the way, Neil invites his trusted childhood friend Zander to come and stay with him.
