In a world without crime, and where murder simply doesn't happen, Ben Jones finds himself on the run from the Plod, the Service and a terrorist organisation that may well have had a divine experience on an expanse of tarmac somewhere south of a small Middle-Eastern city. Whatever it is that he has that they want it is clear that they will stop at nothing to possess it. And these aren't the sort of people you can ask for clarification and so giving it up isn't easy.
