This novel is a mystery about what happens when Easy Rider turns fifty.
Have you ever had times in your life when everything feels so grueling that you just wanted to jump on a high-powered motorcycle and speed down a highway, leaving the whole mess behind you? Warren Ritter has been doing that for thirty years. His run began in the Sixties when he was a leader in the radical Weather Underground. But this life-long road trip comes to a shattering halt on the streets of Berkeley, California, when a kidnapper and killer frames him for murder. Warren reaches out for help from Sally McLaughlin, a paraplegic hacker, and then falls in love with her. What unfolds from there is a journey in which Warren must leave sanity behind and plunge over the edge into brilliant madness in order to save his life, and redeem his heart.
