When Professor Adam Snell disappears from his office at University of Washagon, and then most copies of his somewhat controversial and already rare novel start to disappear, the police find him almost dead. Book is the story of his recovery, search for the killer (who is revealed to the audience early in the book) and the burgeoning commercial success of the book upon republication.
