Since blowing it with Jude, Ollie has become a cynical wreck. Life without her feels as hollow as a Ronan Keating song. He alleviates his pain by dedicating his days to slacking around. That is until he visited by the mother of long-time friend Caleb Keys.
No one has heard from Caleb since his last postcard, months ago, from the infamous beaches of Goa. Is Caleb in serious trouble? Mrs Key's sends Ollie on a mission to India to find her wayward son. Surely if Ollie can find where the party's at, Caleb won't be too far away. And what better way to get over Jude than a trip to a very foreign land...
Ollie's search takes him from Mumbai to Goa, then up to the Himalayas, checking out on the way what's on offer - gurus, drugs - and bumping into the Indian mafia. When Ollie catches the trail of his friend he's in for the surprise of his life. He loses his grip on how things seem to be and how they really are, descending into a frenzied hunt for Caleb. Fuelled by even harder drugs and uncontrollable jealousy, Ollie's eventual meeting with Caleb has a shocking outcome
