Summary (From the publisher):

The account of Professor Katsumi of Tokyo who has assembled and programmed a computer which, given all the available facts about a person or situation, can predict the future. Because a similar computer in Moscow is being uset to make forecasts of a political nature, his institute's governing body decides to avoid politics and try to foresee the future of an individual. A man is picked, apparently at random, only to be murdered before he can be programmed, but the computer can still read his mind. The resulting involvements are complicated by a climactic shift - Inter Ice Age 4 - which puts earth under water.
