Summary

Stan Glass, information specialist and professional paranoid, is the kind of guy who for a fee will find out anything about anything, no questions asked. But when his latest client, businessman David Ringer, turns up dead outside the Looking Glass Bar and Restaurant, and when a computer check later reveals some disturbing anomalies (that there may in fact be two David Ringers instead of one), he begins to wonder what he's gotten himself into.Things only get more complicated the next morning when he's visited by two underworld types, Arthur LeBlanc and his right hand man, Ditto, who try to pump him for information about the dead man and then threaten him rather explicitly when he claims he knows nothing. Something they tell him sends Glass to the office of his long-time friend Eddie Dedman, a private investigator and former operative for the CIA who had referred David Ringer to him in the first place, and when he finds the man brutally murdered, his worst fears are confirmed: that he has somehow stumbled into something he doesn't understand.Glass's first impulse is to run. He has a secret history of his own, having spent the last decade incognito, shifting from town to town and identity to identity in an effort to stay one step ahead of the vague government and corporate agencies pursuing him; and he fears that the ongoing events surrounding these crimes may eventually expose him - if not kill him outright. But he also feels an obligation to his dead friend, and when the man's widow Angela shows up with a gun, demanding answers, Glass knows what he must do.
