      The experimental USAF fighter Arrow One was cruising eight miles over the Arctic Ocean when Ground Command came on-line to direct the pilot toward a mysterious object with a trajectory that traced back to the USSR. 'Got him! ' said Arrow One's radar man. The pilot pushed the throttle forward and the plane bucked under him in a blast of acceleration. Soon the Arrow was passing Mach Three and the Soviet machine was in sight. As the Arrow roared over it, the pilot signalled back to Ground Command, 'No markings on him, but there's one thing you ought to--' Before he could finish the sentence, the Arrow blew apart, and it's up to scientist Paul Sarko to find out why. Paul knows that his life is in danger from Soviet agents. What he doesn't know is that when he takes the remaining Arrow up the real danger will come straight at him, with laser fury.
