John Lennon. Whereabouts unknown.
The former Beatle and US Presidential candidate – who took the world to the brink of nuclear war in 1988 – has disappeared, seemingly off the face of the earth.
Frank Vogel is the FBI agent who let Lennon slip through his fingers back in ‘88. Now working as a small-time bounty hunter, Vogel has spent the last seven years following up countless Lennon sightings all over the world, but with little success.
One day, Vogel receives a tip from across the Atlantic. There’s a rumour going around that John Lennon – the world’s most wanted man – is writing songs again.
Vogel travels to the UK where he encounters The Angelicas. Known to their fans as ‘the Angels’ – the band’s meteoric rise to stardom is largely credited to an anonymous songwriting collaborator, known only as the ‘Fifth Angel’.
But who is the ‘Fifth Angel’? Can it really be John Lennon? And if Vogel manages to track the ex-Beatle down, will revenge lead to redemption?
