I think you're thinking of _Number of the Beast_, one
of the two Heinlein's I've actually read.  I enjoyed
it a lot, and was relieved to find it much better than
_The Cat Who Walks Through Walls_, which was *not* a
good introduction to his work.  I've always meant to
pick up another, probably _The Moon is a Harsh
Mistress_ because I've heard so many good things about
it, even from people who aren't fond of most of his
other stuff.  Perhaps I'll get around to it someday...
