And doesn't even know what he supposedly knows that merits a new name, a new identity, a new life?
Jay Johnson is an Average Joe, a 30-something guy with a job in telephone sales, a regular pick-up basketball game, and a devoted girlfriend he seems ready to marry. But one weekday afternoon, he's abducted on a Los Angeles Metro train, tranquilized, interrogated, and his paper trail obliterated. What did he see, what terrible crime - or criminal - is he keeping secret? It must be something awfully big. The trouble is, Jay has no clue.
Furious and helpless, and convinced that the government has made a colossal mistake, Jay is involuntarily relocated to a community on Catalina Island - which turns out to be inhabited mainly by other protected witnesses. Isolated in a world of strangers, Jay begins to realize that only way out is through the twisted maze of lies and unreliable memories swirling through his own mind. If he can locate - or invent - a repressed memory that might satisfy the Feds, maybe he can make it back to the mainland and his wonderful, even if monotonous, life.
Set in a noir contemporary L.A. and environs, Fifty Mice is a Hitchcockian thriller as surreal and mysterious as a Kafka nightmare. Chilling, paranoiac, and thoroughly original, it will have listeners grasping to distinguish what is real and what only seems that way.

Where does Fifty Mice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
unpredictable and refreshing - I've listened to a lot of mysteries!
What did you like best about this story?
It took lots of twists and turns that I simply didn't see coming.
Have you listened to any of D. W. Moffett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
well done, am familiar w/ him and was like listening to an old friend telling a great story.
Any additional comments?
so worth the listen!

It just isn't very good, frankly..
Although it's eloquently written, the literary aspirations of the writer are drowned in a banal story that becomes less interesting by the minute. This could have been something good, but the writer seemed to be too engaged in amusing himself with directionless prose.
