A mystery with meaning, written with a kick. We start off in the mind of Alan Fraser, a simple middle-aged man who suffers from periodic blackouts and the uncanny feeling that something is wrong. Later he discovers that he is living behind a carefully controlled facade...but why? The explanations become more and more complex...is he to become the first Super-slave or Super-man? Davies carries the reader along through some astonishing subtleties right up to the final surprise.
