Prequel to The Human Xenocide (no spoilers). It only took four years to afford the map, but once he had it Peter left the city he's always known for where the map pointed. Forest creatures called Sairy's found him soon after, thinking he's a God. He stumbles upon an Illegal research facility later under the desert, and before he knows it Peter is being chased by a mad scientist, starts a massive war between the Sairy's and the scientist's creations, is singled out by the police for murder and unintentionally steals from the Mafia. Now with seemingly half the world after him Peter has to decide, is it worth it to still follow the map?
