Philip St. John (Lester del Rey)


Copyright/published Year: 1958 by John C Winston Co


ISBN: n/a


Binding: hardcover

Young Danny Cross couldn't understand the telegram from the Security Commission ordering him home from college. He wondered whether it had to do with the reported death of one of America's leading atomic scientists in a rocket explosion over White Sands. He was surprised to find that it was only another thorough security check and a change of security card - the vital "open sesame" to anyone living in Alamogordo, New Mexico, at the dawn of the Space Age.

Clearly, there was a change in the atmosphere at the proving grounds. More and more specialists seemed to be vanishing in "rocket explosions" miles above the Earth - explosions without debris, and without much investigation other than the security checks.
