Back cover text

The youth rebellion had triumphed...

The young long since had taken over Earth. Sex, drugs, kicks were unlimited. But the trip from groove to grave was quick. No one was allowed to live past 21.

Logan was a Sandman, one of the elite police who hunted those who refused to accept their fate. Then Logan turned 21 — and suddenly he was desperately running, searching, in a world of cities beneath the sea, frozen Arctic prison colonies, great hollowed-out mountains, abandoned cities...

...through a labyrinth of terror that lay between him and safety ... between him and ultimate triumph....

"Strange ... weird ... fearsome ... calculated to keep you awake all night"
—Baltimore Sun
