You are about to enter a world...
where all engineering ingenuity has been employed for public spectacles of torture and death

where the stock market operates with pari-mutuel machines

where a court clerk transcribes testimony on punch cards, then feeds it to a jury machine

where the dream real-estate development of today has become a cracked-concrete savage jungle

In this world, young lawyer Charles Mundin battles a great combine of corporate interests -- battles them in board meetings and in dark alleys -- in a struggle that lays bare some brutal promises of the future... promises we are beginning to make right now.

"... wholly admirable, in both thinking and execution." -- Galaxy

"Reminiscent in vigor, bite and acumen to THE SPACE MERCHANTS" -- Anthony Boucher.

"... possessed of a bite and savage vigor which makes it one of the outstanding science fiction novels of the year." -- The New York Times

"... a powerfully convincing story." -- New York Herald Tribune
