Hornswell Hake is leading a quiet life as a Unitarian
pastor, trying to be a good citizen
and not a power pig
, when he is recruited into The Team
, an arm of the US Government
The true nature of The Team slowly dawns on our good reverend while on a "goodwill tour
" of Europe.
To find out what happens from there, you must read the book
, which I highly recommend. This is quintessential Pohl.
