It's the middle of February and all over Auckland the lights are going out. Samuel Usher is a data- retrieval specialist- a broken man working on broken machines. Sam's drinking too much, taking too many drugs- trying to get by. Until he meets Candy and Jules, two drifting mathematicians, each after a Holy Grail- the one perfect theory that will make their worlds complete. After five years together, neither is getting any closer to their goal. As for Sam- he just wants Candy. And for a while, it looks as if he may have her. Then Jules is found in a coma, and Candy disappears. All Sam's left with is a strange list of numbers and three words- ANYWAY FREEDOM GOODBYE. Sam's pursuit of the truth will lead him into an underworld of chaos and turbulence, where numbers rule and love and friendship collide.
