It is 2056. World order is in tatters with bribery and corruption everywhere. Elections are fixed. World leaders feather their nests, leaving the poor destitute. Even judges grant leniency for bribes. The United Nations, bogged down by vetoes, is replaced, and Supreme Court Judge Henry persuades the US president and the UK prime minister to take worldwide action, but sinister mastermind Viktor opposes with his robots scanning the ether and selling information. Envoys, even with advanced technology, suffer perils and have extraordinary hair-raising and ingenious escapes to delight the reader, as will the romantic episodes.
