From London, Paris and New York come reports of some weird occurrences. Strange lights and objects are seen flying across the sky.
Not only that, but closely guarded gold, uranium and other precious metals were vanishing almost in front of the eyes of the men on guard.
Called in to investigate these mysterious events, Neil Vaughan soon became convinced that no human agency could be responsible, and that some sinister outside force was at work.
Events beyond the realm of possibility soon begin to plague Vaughan on his quest to find out the truth.
The world's natural resources continue to disappear... Even from Fort Knox...
Creatures, gigantic and made of shadow, creep through the night, causing precious resources and even people to vanish into oblivion...
