Cosmopolis, by Paul Bourget
Slight rubbing at head and tail of spine. Sitting in his stretch limousine as it moves across the middle of Manhattan, he finds the city at a virtual standstill because the President is visitng, a rapper's funeral is proceeding through town, and a violent protest is being staged in Times Square by anti-globalist groups. Eric's bodyguards are worried that he is a target and, indeed, he is - although the danger, as it turns out, is not from protestors or political assassins but from an anonymous man who lives in an abandoned building.
