Peter LaNague's unique revolution sets out to topple the entrenched Outworld Imperium as well as fundamentally altering every Outworlder's concept of government. To accomplish this he must ally himself with a madman, trust the word of the last of Sol System's robber barons, make incisive use of the consummate warriors from the planet Flint (without allowing them to run amok), confound at every turn the omnipresent forces of the Imperium, and, every now and then, make it rain money.
Those are the easy parts.
LaNague's greatest challenge is to see his plan through to successful completion without becoming the very enemy he has vowed to destroy.
Short stories "Lipidleggin'" and "Ratman" are reprinted in this edition as well as an introduction by the author.

I'm generally an F.Paul Wilson fan, but must say that Enemy of the State, Wheels Within Wheels and Healer are some of the best socio/political sci-fi ever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I didn't know what to expect when I read this first novel of Wilson's but I was not disappointed. The concept is completely fascinating and the characterization is very powerful. Anyone can fall in love with Dalt and Pard, you don't have to be a Science Fiction Fan.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
