Decent premise, awful execution. Would recommend - to no one.

Re-reading this after many years. An expanded version of a short story which I normally don't like. But anything by Laumer is always good. Even his so called worst is still an enjoyable read.
Addendum: I forgot how Laumer turned the ending completely around. Still another enjoyable read.
