Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The Government of North America has been pushed into the sea and survives only on the West coast of Ireland as a strict military dictatorship. The East of the U.S. is ruled by The Syndic - permissive, happy, possibly doomed - and to the West is Mob territory.

Charles Orsino and Lee Falcaro from the Syndic are planted as spies in Government territory. They discover the truth about the outside world and the extent of the dangerous scheme which is being plotted to smash the Syndic for ever.

The Syndic which Edmund Crispin compares to Orwell’s 1984. is recognized as Kornbluth’s most brilliant and prophetic novel.

C. M, Kornbluth is also the co-author with Frederik Pohl of the-Hugo award winning novel THE SPACE MERCHANTS and GLADIAT0RS AT LAW
