The requirement that narcotics agents remain anonymous, to avoid collusion and other forms of corruption, becomes a critical plot point late in the book. While supposedly only posing as a drug user, Arctor becomes addicted to "Substance D" also referred to as "Slow Death," "Death," or "D" , a powerful psychoactive drug derived from a small blue flowering plant, Mors ontologica. An ongoing conflict is Arctor's love for Donna, a drug dealer through whom he intends to identify high-level dealers of Substance D. Arctor's persistent use of the drug causes the two hemispheres of his brain to function independently, or "compete. Donna takes Arctor to "New-Path," a rehabilitation clinic, just as Arctor begins to experience the symptoms of Substance D withdrawal.

Barris says that Freck can use the cocaine to seduce Donna, who is a known coke fiend.

Meanwhile, Bob Arctor gets assigned to look for a certain drug dealer in New-Path, a rehab clinic. The New-Path staff hurls insults at Arctor, which is apparently part of the standard rehab treatment. Arctor leaves feeling shaken, without having determined whether the drug dealer is hiding there.

When Arctor's true identity is hidden, he is known as Special Agent Fred. At his regular meeting with Hank, another drug agent in disguise, Fred learns that someone has been making anonymous calls alerting the police to the fact that Bob Arctor is a suspicious character.

Hank and Fred always wear scramble suits when they meet, so Hank does not know that Fred is really Arctor. He assigns Arctor to spy on himself. Arctor must keep his two roommates, Barris and Ernie Luckman, out of the house one afternoon so that the police department can send a squad into his house to set up surveillance equipment.

The three men set off to look at a rental cephalochromoscope. Arctor ditches his roommates and visits Kimberly Hawkins, a young junkie who lives in the projects.

Arctor gets involved in a domestic dispute that Kimberly is having with her boyfriend Dan. On the way home, Arctor's car goes out of control.


It appears to have been sabotaged. When he has a bad reaction to some drugs that Barris supplies, Artor starts to feel that Barris is out to get him. Arctor gets summoned to Room at police headquarters.

Two medical officers explain that Arctor shows signs of split-brain dementia, caused by overuse of Substance D.

They do some psychological tests on Arctor. From a police-commandeered apartment a few blocks from his home, Arctor begins watching the holo-scans produced by the surveillance equipment in his home. Whenever he goes to the safe apartment, he wears his scramble suit and takes on the identity of Secret Agent Fred. While watching a live feed, Fred sees Barris passively observe as Luckam almost chokes to death on some food.

Arctor grows more suspicious and fearful about Barris's personality.

Arctor goes to Donna's apartment, where the two smoke hash and make plans to see a movie at a drive-in theater. Arctor tells Donna that he loves her, but when tries to hug her she refuses and tells him that he is ugly.

Feeling angry, Arctor gets up to leave.

Donna apologizes and explains that he is not a person she could see herself marrying. Later that night, Arctor brings home a little needle-freak named Connie for sex. In the darkness, he imagines that she transforms into Donna.

Watching holo-scans the next day, Arctor watches the tape of Connie sleeping and sees her face appear to morph into Donna's.

He begins to wonder whether he is losing his mind.

The holo-scans also reveal that Barris is setting Arctor up for nonpayment of a bounced check. Barris pretends to be Arctor when a creditor calls and refuses to pay the money owed. Arctor learns the name of the creditor, a locksmith, and tracks down the locksmith's shop to pay the money owed and keep him out of legal trouble. He is surprised by how precise Barris's forgery of his signature is on the check.

Then, Arctor remembers that he himself actually wrote the check, for a copied key during a night of heavy partying. At this point in the novel, Arctor begins reciting German poetry at odd moments. He is not aware of the times that he speaks in German.

The German is presumably stored in his memory from childhood, when Arctor lived with an elderly relative who often read German books aloud. Charles Freck decides to kill himself, because he is depressed about his drug addiction. However, his plans go wrong when he takes the wrong kind of drugs.

He realizes that he has overdosed on psychedelics rather than barbiturates. Principles and Practices By - John F.
