The men at the mammoth atomic plant at Kimberly knew what that meant, but they didn't have time to think about it. The new process had run wild, and the only man who knew how to control its deadly potential was trapped inside a swirling chaos of radioactive materials. Dozens were already dead, more were dying, and only an impossible operation could save the day. If the berserk nuclear reaction couldn't be stopped, within hours half of North America would be totally destroyed.
