"On the eve of the end of the world, 20 December 2012, five friends meet in Spanish Gardens, the café where they had celebrated their college graduation 20 years before. Over Irish coffees, they reminisce - and reveal long-held and disturbing secrets. Each friend in turn is given a curious set of instructions by an enigmatic bartender named Ariel ... Each in turn passes through the portal and are faced with new lives and challenges. Their decisions show a new life - or something far worse. At the end of the world, it's a chance for redemption, or a chance to learn something about themselves." - P.  of cover.
