Publisher's Blurb – Jacket Flaps
Throughout the world the names of Kaufmann and Roditis were synonymous with power, wealth and cunning ability. Mark Kaufmann's heritage was one of empire builders, and none embodied their financial genius and ruthlessness more than his late uncle, Paul Kaufmann. John Roditis was the antithesis of the Kaufmann family. He was a self-made man, having accumulated his wealth through untiring work and calculating shrewdness.

After the death of his uncle, Mark knew he had the most desperate struggle of his career ahead of him - to prevent John Roditis from acquiring his uncle's mind and soul through the expensive and elaborate Scheffing process. For it was an age when the mind of a dead person could be transplanted into the body of a living person.

John was obsessed with the transplant, for with the mind of Paul Kaufmann there would be little that wouldn't be within his grasp, including social status - a standing that heretofore had been denied him. Mark was determined to stop him and no price was too high to pay. But neither man was prepared for the treacherous involvement of Mark's mistress, Elena Volterra. and his daughter, Risa, in this merciless struggle for a man's mind. This is an unusual science fiction novel which thrusts the reader into a future as yet undreamt of. But even in that advanced super age the same forces drive men to the pinnacles of power, wealth and destruction which motivate the financial geniuses of today.
