Earthquake Weather

by Tim Powers

The magical King of the West has been killed in California, and his assassin is one of the multiple personalities in the head of Janis Cordelia Plumtree--but which one? Sid Cochran is a one-time winemaker who blames his wife's suicide on the wine god Dionysus, and believes that Dionysus is now pursuing him.

Janis and Sid escape together from a mental hospital in Los Angeles and--pursued by ghosts, gangsters, and a crazy psychiatrist--set out for San Francisco and the wine country to try to restore the dead King of the West to life.

The god Dionysus himself is a player in this perilous game--and not on their side. But when the spirits flow and even the gods lose all inhibition, you have to save the world just to survive!
