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.

Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Most of the time, Clay Blackburn is your average, bisexual, book scout in Berkeley, but sometimes he's a would-be private detective--without a license, gun, or even a business card. Despite his questionable qualifications, people still come to him for help, and he inevitably comes across more than his fair share of trouble. Through it all, he's constantly seeking the fountain of youth, the myth of paradise, the pie in the sky--The Incredible Double. Fighting his way through corporate shills, Berkeley loonies, and CEO thugs, Clay struggles to understand the secret of The Double and discover the true meaning of life. Joined by his three trusty but goofy sidekicks--best friend and lefty soldier of fortune Marvin, ex-FBI agent Bailey Dao, and smarmy but debonair Dino Centro--Clay confronts a host of bizarre characters, including 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.
