Summary

Earthlings: beware! Do you know who your enemies are? Your neighbor? Your boss? Your butcher? Your wife? 

Only the Voltarians know for sure. They’ve successfully infiltrated our little world - and it may never be the same. They walk among us. They work among us. And they’re making themselves right at home, prepping the planet for a power play unlike any you've ever seen before.

In this web of espionage, intrigue, and betrayal, even Voltarian Royal Combat Engineer Jettero Heller doesn’t know whom he can trust. He’s hard at work creating a gasoline substitute to fuel his ’68 Caddy in a Long Island automobile race - a development that could have dramatic consequences for the entire human race. As such, he poses a grave threat to the powers that be. 

Now, his treacherous fellow Voltarian Soltan Gris has formed a secret alliance with a cabal that includes a dirty DC politician, a ruthless billionaire industrialist, and a mysterious media madman. Their mission: terminate Jettero Heller. 

Beset by double-crossing body doubles and backstabbing identity shifters, Heller discovers that the most dangerous battle of all is about to begin...against The Enemy Within.

The soul of wit

Being somewhat dated (written in the mid-1980s, I believe) this satire of modern day America lacks cell phones, the Internet, and even any significant mention of computers! Despite all of that, the reader will see clear parallels between this story and many very current events. If anything, the technological changes that have occurred in the last 30 years have exacerbated these phenomena. If you enjoy a wild ride performed brilliantly with a great sense of humor, these books are for you.

Not a narration is a condensed dramatization

This is not a word for word narration and it even skips entire chapters. The music is so loud at parts and the vocals so low you have to turn it way up hear what is being said then the music stops suddenly and vocals so loud it deafens you.
