A rock musician, famous for one hit song in 1983, vanishes without a trace. Due to his mysterious disappearance, his old albums begin to sell again, and there’s a movie in the works on his life.
But Chance Martin is not dead. In 2006, he arrives home from a gig, only to discover ten years have passed without him. His entire world has changed, but, inexplicably, he hasn’t aged a day.
And that’s when things get really strange...

Members of Charon’s Ferry, a band he played in before his short brush with fame, are stalking him. He doesn’t recognize his old bandmates, and he soon learns that all the members of Charon’s Ferry have long since died.

So who are these guys and why do they want him to rejoin Charon’s Ferry?

Faced with progressively more surreal circumstances, and with the help of a mysterious romance writer named Juliet, the normally unflappable Chance must navigate his strange new life without boarding Charon’s Ferry himself, once and for all.
