At the Sand Beach nuclear power plant, head physicist Paul Hanson suspects that the supposedly fail-safe reactor system has a built-in flaw that could trigger off an accidental atomic explosion.¬† Torn between professional loyalty and the safety of thousands, Hanson realises that the cost of rectifying this lethal defect could mean commercial suicide for the Company.¬† But what neither Hanson nor his superiors know is that one revenge-obsessed man with access to the reactor’s heart has lunatic designs of his own which – if not discovered in time – will wreak the worst human devastation¬† the world has seen since Hiroshima.
