Why are the laws of gravity and momentum strangely altered?
Why has the world's population continually increased without the predicted eco-crisis taking place?

Manalone, outcast from society, must fight the entire machinery of a ruthless police state to discover the truth. And the truth is an awful, chilling one, that sounds only too real in today's world.
