Major Harvey Alexander, Director Wildwood Atomic Power Plant—that was his title. But impressive as it sounded, the major knew it was nothing more than governmental putting-out-to-pasture. A former top-ranking Army Intelligence officer isn’t placed in charge of an antique power pile in the middle of nowhere unless someone with a great deal of influence wants him out of the way!
And when three bars of U-metal were smuggled out of the plant—carried right past the exit monitors in an obvious frame-up—then Alexander knew for sure that his unknown enemy was ready for the final step. And in Federated America, where the Department of Psychological Control ruled unquestioned, that final step was the mind-pick!
The major had to work fast now. He had to find out who was trying to destroy him, and why . . . or face the rest of his life as a mindless idiot in a forced labor battalion!
