On Lanzarote, it is possible to meet some fascinating human specimens - notably Pam and Barbara, 'non-exclusive' German lesbians. Will they succeed in seducing Rudi, the police inspector from Luxembourg, currently living in exile in Brussels? Or will he join the Azraelian sect, as they prepare for humanity to be regenerated by extraterrestrials? As for our narrator, will he consider his week's holiday on the island a success?
