When Billy is dying in San Francisco, his recovering alcoholic brother travels to the city to reconnect with him after many years of little contact. But he's too late, so what he sets out to do instead is to find out why Billy died under somewhat mysterious circumstances. The few leads that he gathers over time point to Billy's involvement as a volunteer in a shelter for homeless people with AIDS, run by a charismatic but shady local character whose other venture is focused on meditation as a method for self-healing.

Not as silly as some GMP novels that I've read in the past, but pretty forgettable. ( )
