KIRKUS REVIEW

..... is Reich, ridden by the nightmare of a faceless man whom he later identifies as a business rival, D'Courtney. Helped, but also jeopardized by the Espers with their special powers of telepathy, Reich kills his man but cannot escape evidence for a conviction. But Reich is still left with his nemesis- the Man With No Face-until he is reconverted from demolition towards a new life. A new language (could it be esperanto?) and symbols for what is basically a scrimmage of man against man.
