Joe Chip said, "I've never been sued by a door. But I guess I can live through it."
Chip works for Glen Runciter's anti-psi security agency, which hires out its talents to block telepathic snooping and paranormal dirty tricks. When its special team tackles a big job on the Moon, something goes terribly wrong. Runciter is killed, it seems--but messages from him now appear on toilet walls, traffic tickets, or product labels.

Like the man said, "I'm not dead yet!"
Or maybe you are dead and don't know it.
Who the hell knows!
I am finding in a lot of my recent reviews that my main gripe has to do with not caring about the characters. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Athelas
I'm going to have to re-read this. Pretty mind-bending stuff. I got a Matrix meets Inception meets What Dreams May Come vibe. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Amazon Customer
