Set in New York, Tehran, Port au Prince and Tegucigalpa, Octopus Intelligence tells the story of two desperate men. One, a former intelligence contractor suffering from a mysterious ailment, has returned home to find an oblique message spelled out on his bedroom floor. Another, a self-medicating paleontologist, has just discovered a four hundred million year old transitional cephalopod in the Moroccan desert. One will be liberated, and the other lost, in this extraordinary novel of paranoia, politics, scientific rivalry, pain management and postmodern theatre.
It'll be a loudspeaker that wakes him in a bus terminal in Pittsburgh or Cleveland or Buffalo, and he'll open his eyes to empty chairs and the smell of diesel.
