"A weak voice, gasping with pain, came on the line. 'That thing...you asked me to look into...It's more than you thought...worse. I...think...th-they...killed...me....' There was only silence on the line - then the sound of a body collapsing."With this, Mark Hardin is on the trail of his most seductive enemy: Linda King, the Colonel. Supposedly a wealthy social worker rehabilitating juvenile court cases, she is training her charges to commit terror by contract. With the Penetrator closing in, she takes hostages, threatens to blow up a TVA dam, and demands a cool $5 million in ransom.
