Mars is a desolate world. Largely forgotten by Earth, the planet remains helpless in the stranglehold of Arnie Kott, who as boss of the plumbers' union has a monopoly over the vital water supply.
Arnie Kott is obsessed by the past; the native Bleekmen, poverty-stricken wanderers, can see into the future; while to Manfred, an autistic boy, time apparently stops. When one of the colonists, Norbert Steiner, commits suicide, the repercussions are startling and bizarre.

Another great book by Philip K. Dick
I can thoroughly recommend this book. Dick had an amazing vision and this novel lives up to his high standards. It's almost up there with Flow My Tears The Policeman Said, A Scanners Darkly, The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch and Ubik
