Possibly one of the best sci-fi yarns, ever.

I first read this on publication back in the 1980's and enjoyed it then. I have re-purchased and re-read with gusto over the intervening years.

The story is undeniably good, the plot excellent, the tension inexorable.

The narrator I at first thought work-a-day, but he turned out to be very, very, good.
