Dustwrapper not price-clipped, a little wear to corners and edge, tiny nicks, chip near spine. 278pp. The Truth Seekers, a religious cult group in northern New York State, may seem like ordinary small-town Americans to their neighbours, but they have important friends. Through their leader, the beautiful prophetess Verena, they believe themselves to be in communication with beings on another planet, who are soon to land on Earth in a flying saucer and save mankind. Tom McMann, a professor of sociology, and his young assistant Roger, have decided that the Seekers will provide excellent material for an intensive study of group behaviour. They infiltrate the group, pretending to become converts to their faith, and becoming friends with the cult members.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.
