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 palaeontologist, 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 post-modern theatre.
