The novel takes place sometime in the future, when the Earth is dominated by several wealthy and lucrative businesspeople. William Ewart - owner of Ewart Communications - is one of these, and is completely obsessed with maintaining his position as the wealthiest man on Earth.
After a hostile takeover by another rival leaves him powerless, Ewart leaves Earth along with his henchman Grawl to marry his fourth wife, a princess of Algol. Along with a dysfunctional group of mercenaries and missionaries, the group proceeds to the pleasure-planet Hideaway, where Ewart hopes to make a quick comeback after his humiliating downfall on Earth.
In 2000, Garnett wrote a follow-up novel entitled Bikini Planet. However, the novel only features two of the original characters - in this case, Grawl and Princess Janesmith - and thus is only an indirect sequel to the original.
