|uxton turned torture and brainwashing inside
out. He had to. He was sentenced to death. But under the
plan "Future Victory" his execution would be
deferred for two years, while he was "taught' to
think as his enemies did. To resist his tormentors was
futile. His only chance for survival was to maintain
control of his own mind . . . whatever the price. And
soon, he was engaged in a brutal psychological duel
between captive and ruthless captor . . . until he
realized the frightening similarity belween himself and
the woman who held his life in her hands.
