The Incredible Double


Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

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.

Written by Owen Hill and published by PM Press, 2009.  Part of their hard-boiled crime fiction series.



"The mystery is real, the stakes are high; some people make it through while others . . . well, let's just say they're compromised. Here we have the essence of noir, a sense of life lived at the edges."  —Los Angeles Times

“Owen Hill's breathless, sly, and insouciant mystery novels are full of that rare Dawn Powel-ish essence: fictional gossip.”  —Jonathan Lethem, author, The Fortress of Solitude
