Review by Bill Johnston

Needle by Clement is about a race of amoeba-like organisms who are parasites beneficial to other intelligent beings. One "crazy" one, which has no qualms about harming his host, is loose on Earth, and another, a detective, is trying to find him. The book is written for juveniles, and while it may seem implausible, it is rather unique.
