The review of this Book prepared by Mark Bartel

During a regular police action against narcoterrorists, Burnham comes across a corpse with no identity. Burnham's quest for that identity leads him to uncovering a nightmare worldwide conspiracy against the natural progress of humanity where every stranger may be an assassin looking just for him. Pursued by his suspicions and turncoats within the LAPD, Burnham flees his home with his only real friends, his girlfriend and his sentient Patrol Flyer. His eventual capture after being named himself as Public Enemy #1, condemns him to death under the terms of The Stasis Option, an ultimate punishment for the worst criminals of the Mid-21st Century United States of America.
