The key to Robur's power lies in his latest invention, a vehicle called The Terror. It can travel by land, air, or sea, reaching such speed that it can only be seen as a blur. John Strock, federal police officer, is assigned to investigate. But he soon finds that stopping Robur is more difficult than he bargained on!
