Sam believes in Daniel's innocence and agrees to help Clara prove it. The large cast of well-drawn characters in the book include Sam's eccentric tenant, who lifts weights to the Goldberg Variations; a mysterious FBI agent, who antagonizes Sam at every turn; a shady man with possible Mafia connections, who is eager to buy into Arbor Vitae and who happens to cultivate rare plants; and the seductive Arbor Vitae research scientist, Dr.
