Dell 32. SF novel. Great cover art by Richard Powers, though several people also credit the artwork to Robert Stanley? Certainly the painting is not typical of Powers work.

''US author and editor, active under various names in various pulp-magazine markets, perhaps most notably as an author of detective stories, his best work being published under his own name and (more successfully) as M. E. Chaber. The Green Lama series of thrillers (in Double Detective from 1940), as by Richard Foster, gives off fantastic-Pulp-magazine emanations reminiscent of Doc Savage, as the Green Lama himself has various Superpowers (and minions) on demand; but Crossen only began publishing sf proper with ''The Boy who Cried Wolf 359'' in Amazing and ''Restricted Clientele'' in Thrilling Wonder Stories, both released in February 1951. YEAR OF CONSENT (1954), about a Computer that controls the West, expressively conveys the Paranoia of much US fiction of the period'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
