(ch. 23, from an advance uncorrected proof. Final copy may differ).
Charlie seems to be doing unexplainable things in the company and also in his private life. Charlie can't remember writing threatening notes that appear in his own handwriting. He can't remember being involved in murders though all the evidence points to him. His father and brother were schizophrenic and Charlie had been assured he was born free of the disease. But was he? How to explain unexplainable events that lead to threats and murder? Is he also a victim of this mental disorder? Charlie becomes a fugitive trying to find the answers that will preserve his sanity, his legacy, and his own family.
