Jennings is invited to the commune to write, or rewrite, the history of the imminent worldwide revolution. Skeptical but insatiably curious, Jennings sets out for Alaska in the company of the seven mysterious members of the Committee, pursued by a sinister figure who seems to oppose the Committee's mission.
