Baker & Taylor Waking up one morning in another city and in the body of a stranger, teacher Richard Jarrow begins a desperate pursuit of his true identity in a world where individual expression is prohibited
Blackwell North Amer James P. Hogan, bestselling author of Endgame Enigma and The Proteus Operation, returns with his most ambitious novel to date in this suspenseful tale of a man who awakens to find that his former life never existed - and his new life is threatened by hired killers. Richard Jarrow, junior-high social integration teacher, doesn't really mind the enforced carpooling, taxes, regulated economy or even the antitechnology environment police of America. He's been told the Offworld colonies are threatening to take Earth's resources and that they are the enemy. But after Jarrow volunteers for an experimental medical treatment, he wakes up to find seven months of his life gone - and that everything, everyone, he knows is totally alien to him...as though he never existed. Suddenly Jarrow finds himself in the middle of an intricate plot to track down an American scientist named Ashling who is defecting to the technologically advanced and politically free Offworld colonies. Although Jarrow has never met Ashling, the scientist is the key to what happened to him and the linchpin of a worldwide conspiracy. Soon Jarrow's on the run, trying to survive, trying to piece together what happened to his former life - only to discover that he has been living a lie. The Multiplex Man, filled with stunning twists, revelations, and breathtaking adventure on the run, affirms James P. Hogan as a master of technological suspense. Here is a tale of all-too-real technology and politics, an edge-of-your-seat novel that'll keep you guessing until the very end.
