Rod McBan the Hundred and Fifty-First, the richest boy in the galaxy
He passed the test of the Garden of Death, but was still a telepathic cripple -- a danger to Norstrilia his enemies claimed, as owner of the guarded planet's key landholding: the Station of Doom.
The only road to safety, his computer told him, was to become the richest man in the universe ... and he did, in one crowded, unbelievable night.
The computer's logic was faultless ... but man isn't logical.  And now Roderick Frederick Ronald William MacArthur McBan 151st had a galaxy of people ... and other beings -- out to rob him, to use him ... or to kill him!
