Blurb: “The year is 2018. The place is London, where a renamed Buckingham Palace is now the home of the President of a European Federation of states.

For a variety of reasons, mainly the staggering expense, Plying is limited to valuable works of art, intricate industrial mechanisms, etc. And the process is a highly guarded government monopoly.

Then a young art dealer named Max Afford discovers that he can tell an original by touching it!

But a shocking incident forces him into action--action that lands him in the middle of a plot to break into Europa Palace in the hope of saving this Plied society...”
