A brief description from inside the book:

"Armageddon begins with a murder in the Dead Letter Office in Omaha, Nebraska.

A lake that has never existed falls from the clouds over Palomo Grove, California.

Young passion blossoms, as the world withers with war.

The Great and Secret Show has begun on the stage of the world.

And soon, the final curtain must fall."

This Barker book, while being fairly detailed and complex, was just a little more bizarre than I usually enjoy. It certainly stretches the imagination, but I just found it all to be a little too much. And there was no one character that I was able to relate to enough to bring me along for the ride (unlike the character of Gentle in Imajica, my favorite Barker character of all time). Maybe someone else would enjoy this one more than I did?
