At the end of the 21st century, Jeffrey Cooper, an executive design star living in Americanized Germany, has made a Faustian pact with the global economic system running the world. No matter what age he is, the system will secretly keep him young and razor-sharp, as long as he can stay on top of his job and keep profits high. But Cooper has a problem: stress from work and the congested, hyper-competitive life is killing him. Can he keep his stress level a secret from the system itself, his co-workers, and even his own seductive, »Daddyish« therapist who has told him that when all else fails there are »angels« in the world who can save him? But one, in the most violent form, will appear in Jeffrey's life. At first, he seems to be the Devil himself, offering every kind of excitement, even offering Jeffrey's lost soul. But will this younger, extremely mysterious and attractive man end up killing Jeffrey, or saving him?
