A man tainted with death becomes a walking pall over the world of men. Twenty-nine year old widower Keith Cremmins meets Judith, the would-be woman of his dreams, but finds that the shadow of death lingers over their nascent relationship, over the streets of the city, over the entire urban core-- and perhaps even the very firmament of the cosmos itself.
