The first is wealthy and elegant platinum blonde Madeleine Elster, the wife of his college acquaintance Gavin Elster, who hires John to follow her in Gavin`s belief that she may be a danger to herself in thinking that she has may be a danger to herself in thinking that she has recently been possessed by the spirit of Carlotta Valdes, Madeleine`s great-grandmother who she knows nothing about, but who Gavin knows committed suicide in being mentally unbalanced whe she was twenty-six, Madelein`s current age. The second is Judy Barton, who John spots on the streets one day.
