312I: Missing Man

I’m looking for a fantasy book I read in the 80’s or 90’s. I believe the author was a woman. The story was about a man that is pulled into a fantasy world by a broken down cripple, to impersonate a guy that disappeared. There’s a stone that’s embedded into his skin, with memories. He has to convince an old wizard, and a beautiful woman. He also has to confront a bad guy. In the end, it’s revealed that the broken down guy is the missing guy, and that he was corrupted and broken by the evil guy.

One thought on “312I: Missing Man

  1. At first I though this question must refer to the 1975 SF novel by Katherine MacLean — the title is actually “Missing Man.” The protagonist, George, has a knack for finding people and he lives in a futuristic metropolis populated with many odd social groups. But thinking back now, I’m not remembering a wizard.
