Editorial Reviews

Roland Green
Perry is a prolific producer of thriller-type sf novels that do not pretend to offer anything other than lots of fast action with a high-tech flavor--and never fail to provide that. The situation this time revolves around the fact that giving a spin to media coverage has in the future become technologically sophisticated, with highly paid experts wielding enormous power. One of those experts is brought in on a case and finds it more than he bargained for, which sets off a lively tale of intrigue, murder, and sabotage. Perry's following is primarily made up of lovers of hard-core action sf, and they will not be disappointed.
