When a boy vanishes from the heart of a West Country moor, the rest of his school party, the police and the army search in vain. One man, his master, insists that this boy is "special", that he could be of interest to scientists of other countries. What has happened to Julian Drax? What is the unique power he could use to threaten security? Through crisis after crisis, the tension mounts to an agonizing climax.
