Pakulas obsession with the tools of investigation man uses on himself Fradys enquiries lead him through a lab for the behavioural sciences to Parallaxs ultimate device for electronic mind-tapping offers teasing hints to the potential for compulsive behaviour within everyone. Equally, the machines that can be used for investigation can be employed to control. Parallax itself is revealed as just one more body which has learned to map and direct human energies, much like the stage-managed occasions of the traditional political machines. (Richard Combs)
