Arthur Tageman had few worldly worries: he was able to make the payments on his Mini Cooper, paid his rent on time and only had a touch of gray. His ex-wife wanted more alimony but that wasn't a must-do. Arthur worked for Charles Searcy at Megaworld, a studio that had produced blockbusters in the past but was going through a drought with concomitant downsizing. Arthur lost his secretary and his office and then had to plunge by himself into the research tasks that Searcy gave him. To compound the loss of his secretary, Charles now tasked Arthur with delivering parcels to various places in Los Angeles. The parcels appeared to be legitimate company business and Arthur wasn't nosy enough to find out what was in them. One of the parcels was slated for Julius and Sons in Studio City. Arthur left his warehouse office, drove out to the address on the parcel, but received no answer when he attempted to deliver it. Meanwhile, Arthur received strange letters that were postmarked Studio City. Strange because the letters only contained one word: Probe. He was at a loss to try to explain why he was getting such peculiar letters. The unraveling of the mystery of the letters as well as the death of one of the women Arthur was fond of put him on a descending spiral of detection and murder. How will be extract himself from this enigmatic mess? Reading the novel will answer that question.
