An interesting short novel by Eric Russell, one of my favorite sci-fi authors, on how technology can play with your mind. The concept of this novel was pretty advanced for its time and probably isn't science fiction today.
What happens when a man has a secret and suddenly those he depends on are potential enemies. He runs! But to where and from who?
Also highly recommended, by this author, are "The Wasp" and "Three To Conquer."
