KIRKUS REVIEW

The not too forward look sees a post-atomic war world controlled by the Company (insurance) and Claims Adjustor Tom Wills, sent to Italy, is no longer able to sanction its techniques. Luigi Zorchi, a human jelly fish with regenerative tissue (cashing in on all disability policies) and the lovely Rena prove to Tom that the many cases of radiation sickness in a curative suspension (deep freeze) in the company vaults are really political insurgents, lead him to their hideaway on Vesuvius where a cobalt bomb now threatens the world, and they combine to ruin the Company dictator, save the world. Lots of new devices underwritten here- for your conjecture.
