Mark Genevich is stuck in a rut: his narcolepsy isn't improving, his private-detective business is barely scraping by, and his landlord mother is forcing him to attend group therapy sessions. Desperate for companionship, Mark goes on a two-day bender with a new acquaintance, Gus, who is slick and charismatic - and someone Mark knows very little about. When Gus asks Mark to protect a friend who is being stalked, Mark inexplicably finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation and soon becomes the target of the police, a sue-happy lawyer, and a violent local bouncer. Will Mark learn to trust himself in time to solve the crime - and in time to escape with his life?

Did not read print edition, but the audio version was excellent.
The noirish feel together with the narcoleptic PI is a great pairing. It leads to a lot of mystery and intrigue in the story...
Sounds like he really gets the PI role and really captures the confusion that comes out of the narcoleptic sleeps
His gradual admission and coming to grips with his own guilt
Not sure how this got any good ratings. The reader is really weird and the story is flaaaat. Or at least as far as you can discern through this reader. If you like Tom Peters/Grover Gardner as a reader I doubt you will be able to stand this.
