This engrossing read from science fiction master Clifford Simak imagines a distant future in which the discovery of advanced technologies has granted virtual omnipotence to a small group of elite leaders. One man has the courage to stand up against the tyrannical rule, but he has been locked away in prison to prevent him from fomenting a revolution. Will John Moore Mallory escape to free the universe from the grip of these power-hungry despots?
