Weird science fiction in a contemporary setting, here is one of Gene Wolfe's major novels. Four people in contemporary Chicago become caught up in searching for the lost treasure of Benjamin Free.
Jim Stubb, an out-of-work detective; Madame Serpentina, the occultist; Ozzie Barnes, the salesman; and Candy Garth, the generous and overweight prostitute, are brought together for a time to live in Free's house, a house scheduled for demolition. When the demolition occurs and Free disappears, they make a pact to continue the search.
