By the 2050s, advanced drugs have allowed humans to create an infinite shared dreamland where they can go and live out their fantasies. This is the City. But dreams can be bad as well as good. And sometimes you cannot wake up from them. For those who find themselves trapped in the City, there are the Searchers. Moebben is now the last of the Searchers and when he is hired by the inventor of the City to rescue her sister, he knows this will be his last case. But retirement isn’t the only way for a Searcher to end his career.
