When circus aerialist and mentalist Bruno Wildermann is recruited by the CIA for a mission that only someone of his incredible talents could undertake, he is aware that he holds the key to the world's survival in his hands. His assignment is to break into the infamous Lubylan prison in Eastern Europe where a deadly secret is hidden -- a formula capable of annihilating the earth itself. He is to memorize it. And destroy it.

But even before Bruno begins his terrifying assignment the assassins are already in motion...

Here is vintage MacLean with a suspense that builds of equal parts action, espionage, and the razor-edged excitement of a circus atmosphere.
