It was a town of a hundred and eleven souls out in the middle of nowhere, Wyoming. After Jeremy Quick disappeared, a hundred and ten.
Private investigator Linda Crow has been called in by Jeremy Quick's employer, an oil conglomerate, to find out what happened to a man who was good with his hands, good at fixing and cajoling the isolated oil pumps, good at keeping the peace between farmers and the rest of the locals.
Only the oil pumps know what happened.
But Linda has a talent for interpreting their machine dreams.
What happens when the town finds out that their secrets were seen by the machines they can't live without?
