'Mr. Blank' by Justin Robinson

Mr. Blank by Justin Robinson, was published in October 2012 by Candlemark and Gleam. The review in Publisher's Weekly explains, "The smart-aleck narrator of this sassy crime caper is an agent who uses so many aliases for his work in the information underground that his real name is never certain. When he’s nearly killed by someone wielding a stolen moon rock bolted to the chain that bound Joan of Arc to the stake, he has to puzzle out which of the numerous secret societies he works for wants him dead."

A contest held by Mr. Robinson's publisher seems suggestive of where the author drew some of his inspiration. "We’ve finally got a winner in our Mr Blank fnord-finding competition!"
