A new weapon that could change the face of the earth.
Arthur Beecham, a scientist who used to work in the field of particle physics, once proposed that a beam of atomic particles could be used as a weapon.
When the wing of a hospital prison in China is destroyed, two things immediately strike. One, there was an old Caucasian prisoner being held there. Two, no explosives were used to destroy the wall.
When Hamish Penhurst tracks CIA agent Tarp down, he brings news of the destruction at the Chinese hospital prison. All thoughts immediately turn to Arthur Beecham. Was it possible for his proposition to have become a reality?
If the particle beam exists, Tarp knows that Arthur Beecham will be a sought-after man. He needs to be taken out of China, and Tarp is the only one who can help him.
