Psychedelic Supermen? A big bad joke? Or was
Illuminatus an awful, awesome truth – a hellish powerful secret cult
that had striven down 10,000 years to enslave the human race in a
psychotic nightmare? Tough cop Saul Goodman took over the case and even
he learned to dread the ancient core of concentrated evil, this
black-magical band poising the planet for the Third World War. Then
Goodman himself disappeared. The Illuminati brainwashed him and
returned him to the world as their creature. Or so they thought..here
is the shattering climax of Illuminatus, the mind-exploding trilogy
that has enthralled millions. You will never forget this ultimate
reading trip to the outer limits of the contemporary nightmare.
