Scherzo Trepan's journey to the underworld begins each morning on the banks of a river. A rusted fridge is his elevator and to the sweat and heat of an incinerator plant he travels. Until one day he wakes up in a hospital to the sight of aliens landing and the sound of a snapped on rubber glove. More
He searches for his dead sister, Rhiann, whose marriage to the Devil has been arranged by their father as a means of enhancing his job prospects.
Accompanied by a three-legged mutant and a spanner, Scherzo makes a perilous descent into Hell, whilst on the surface world plots shift and transubstantiate, past and future conjoin, entities expostulate, characters - living and dead - get stuck on roundabouts.
