New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 128 p. Audience: General/trade. Clay Blackburn has two jobs. Most of the time he's your average bisexual book scout in Berkeley. Some of the time he's..not quite a private detective. He doesn't have a license, he doesn't have a gun, he doesn't have a business card--but people come to him for help and in helping them he comes across more than his fair share of trouble. And trouble finds him seeking the fountain of youth, the myth of paradise, the pie in the sky Incredible Double. Clay fights his way through corporate shills, Berkeley loonies, and CEO thugs on his way to understanding the secret of Double. Follow his journey to a state of Grace, epiphanies, perhaps the meaning of life. This follow-up to Chandler Apartments, red meat to charter members of the Clay Blackburn cult, is also an excellent introduction to the series. Hill brings back Blackburn's trusty, if goofy sidekicks: Marvin, best friend and lefty soldier of fortune; Bailey Dao, ex-FBI agent; Dino Centro, as smarmy as he is debonair. He also introduces a new cast of bizarre characters: drug casualty turned poet Loose Bruce, conspiracy theorist Larry Sasway, and Grace, the Tallulah Bankhead of Berkeley. Together--and sometimes not so together--they team up to foil Drugstore Wally, the CEO with an evil plan.
