ictator Lilgin held the
entire Earth firmly under his thumb.
Government-controlled science ruled: a superb
communications network constantly monitored the
population, and anyone who dared to question the regime
or Lilgin's supremacy was instantly and tidily
eradicated. But the regime had reckoned without Professor
Dun Higenroth. Higenroth had developed a radically new
communications system that took no account of distance,
that operated in the mind of its creator, without the
need for equipment of any kind-and he intended to use it
to expose Lilgin's every move to the entire world. Lilgin
had to learn the secret of that system if he was to
remain in power. And so the subtle and deadly process of
extracting the information from Higenroth's mind began.
But the full resources of the world government were to
prove useless - FOR HIGENROTH HAD HIDDEN THE
SECRET IN THE GENES OF A CHILD NOT YET BORN!
