THE DEMOLISHED MAN

Penguin SF paperback, 1974 reprint. Cover illustration by
David Pelham.

"'It's lucky for the world i'm willing to stop at one murder. Together we could rape the universe.' 
Ben Reich, head of Monarch utilities and resources, risks everything in a last-ditch take-over bid for the massive D'Courtney Cartel. When it fails only murder, blackmail and bribery are left. 
So Reich sets himself against the whole sophisticated paraphernalia of twenty-fourth century crime fighting, conducted by the peepers - trained telepathists with a strict code of ethics. And even if he can find a bent peeper, there's still the ultimate penalty if he fails - Demolition."
