In a world policed by telepaths, Ben Reich plans to commit a crime that hasn't been heard of in seventy years: murder. That's the only option left for Reich, whose company is losing a ten-year death struggle with rival D'Courtney Enterprises. Terrorized in his dreams by The Man With No Face and driven to the edge after D'Courtney refuses a merger offer, Reich murders his rival and bribes a high-ranking telepath to help him cover his tracks. But while police prefect Lincoln Powell knows Reich is guilty, his telepath's knowledge is a far cry from admissible evidence.

Professional reviews

"Listening to this sci-fi classic is a must to be able to enjoy all aspects of the story. Published in 1953 and winner of the first Hugo Award, the title is now an intriguing and compelling listen. Motivated by professional rivalry, Ben Reich decides to murder his opponent in a world where Espers, or telepaths, are common. But because of them, there has not been a successful murder in 70 years. He will count on the help of a first-class Esper to create "interferences" and will be singing a catchy tune to himself to prevent Espers from reading his mind. Gerard Doyle's singing is one of the details that makes the audiobook special. The listener will not be able to forget this tune! E.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
