President Winfield and his staff have barely formed committees to investigate the tragedy that has cost over 1000 lives when he learns the cause. The Russian Ambassador comes to see him with a chilling tale of the discovery of PSI mind powers and an ultimatum. He has 24 days to surrender the US to Russian control or 30 hidden agents will use these mental powers to cause devastation across the country.

Millions of lives and the future of the nation, now depend on the unrecognized research of an obscure psychologist. Dr. Gordon Whittier must locate a boy he saw control the wind to win sailboat races more than thirty years ago. He must find him, and he must teach him to harness that power.
