    The Pusher by Ed McBain

A bitterly cold night offers up a body turned blue, not frozen, but swinging from a rope in a dank basement. The dead teen seems like a clear case of suicide, but Detective Steve Carella and Lieutenant Peter Byrnes find a few facts out of place, and an autopsy confirms their suspicions. The boy hadn't hung himself but OD'd on heroin before an unknown someone strung him up to hide the true cause of death. The revelation dredges up enough muck to muddy the waters of what should've been an open-and-shut case.

The only problem is that Bob and Fred are the same person. Substance D doesn't just alter the mind, it splits it in two, and neither side knows what the other is doing or that it even exists. Now, both sides are growing increasingly paranoid as Bob tries to evade Fred while Fred tries to evade his suspicious bosses.
