Emanuel Goldsmith, a famous poet, murdered eight people, then disappeared. Three people want to find him: an aspiring writer, an embittered scientist who wants to use him, and a policewoman who needs to put him in custody before the Selectors, a vigilante organization, get to him first.

A meandering work from a great author. Paints an incredibly intricate picture of the Orwellian 1984 societal structure, decades down the road.
But if it is supposed to be a murder mystery, it becomes lost in the fog of each character's existentialism.
If the point of the wiring was to get you add list into their reality, it is a masterpiece. But if it is meant to be a murder mystery, it fails miserably.
The lack of continuity made me stop halfway through, after finding that I had stopped listening several times, and had to remind to where it had lost my interest yet again.
