Eddings is well known for his fantasy so I read this expecting at any moment there's going to be some element of fantasy. There isn't. Instead Eddings provides an up-close look at the dark side of our welfare system. He points out, quite accurately, that it's not in the social workers' best interest to get the clients off the system because, without the client, the social worker is superfluous. Having worked in the system, I recognize the accuracy of this. I've seen enough therapists who are no healthier than their clients so that I find this story absolutely credible.

This is not Eddings usual genre but it is a very interesting indictment of the welfare system of Spokane and how a man helped himself and other avoid its clutches.

The back cover reads like the book is about the fight between good and evil. Its not. Yet, it caught my attention from the first page. More a thesis on the "evils" of social work and the welfare class, nevertheless, Mr. Eddings writes an entertaining story. I nearly stayed up all night reading it.
