It seems he's been living "underground" for 20 years, unable to act in any way because he's so intelligent he can debunk any justification for doing so. The Underground Man (Book): Macdonald, Ross: As a mysterious fire rages through the hills above a privileged town in Southern California, Archer tracks a missing child who may be the pawn in a marital struggle or the victim of a bizarre kidnapping. What he uncovers amid the ashes is murder- and a trail of motives as combustible as gasoline.

Like many other Macdonald novels, The Underground Man takes place primarily in the fictitious Santa Teresa, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Santa Barbara, where Macdonald lived for.
