    Doesn't read like Simak at all. This is a simple adventure story assuming monopolies on technology leading to political dominance. The characters are not very likeable, even the heroes, and they are quite simplistic. The pace is good with plenty happening but there isn't much else good. The plot is silly, it relies on the discovery of a technology that grants almost godlike powers to its idealist finder and he then uses them in largely ridiculous ways. In a very clichéd way less important villains are disposed of but for no reason the key villains aren't, even though they could be. The ending is quite silly too. Certainly the weakest story from Simak I have ever read.
