Jonathan Hoag has a curious problem. Every evening, he finds a mysterious reddish substance under his fingernails, with no memory what he was doing during the day to get it there. Jonathan hires the husband and wife detective team of Ted and Cynthia Randall to follow him during the day and find out. But Ted and Cynthia find themselves instantly out of their depth. Jonathan leaves no fingerprints. His few memories about his profession turn out to be false. Even stranger, Ted and Cynthia's own memories of what happens during their investigation do not match. There is a thirteenth floor to Jonathan's building that does not exist, there are mysterious and threatening beings living inside mirrors, and all of reality is not what they thought it was. Part supernatural thriller, part noir detective story, Heinlein's trip down the rabbit hole leads where you never expected. Download and start listening now!

    " "-and he built a crooked house-" is my favorite from this collection. "_all you zombies_" left me a with a headache trying to untie the time paradox stuff... "

    " This is one of four Heinlein novels that remain in my library. In thirty years I've found my tastes have changed and I don't like much of his work anymore. Yet I marked this particular book "good". "

    " I thought I was re-reading this. The book is on my shelf but I don't remember this story. It was reminding me of Neil Gaiman's short story "The Sunbird" and by the end I was surprised by how much it was like Neil Gaiman. I am amazed by the variety in style in Heinlein stories and how his fantasy differs so much from his hard sf (they don't tend to have the long passages of speechifying) Very interesting read. So glad I sought it out again. "
