"72% of off-world visitors to Anarchaos in the last ten years disappeared without trace and are presumed to have been murdered," the guide told Rolf Malone. "Customs reports you're carrying a surprising assortment of weapons, for which you had no believable explanation.

Such a strange novel, engaging but so frustrating for the main character.
