Later printing. From the cover: “It started in California. A body washed ashore is found by Paula Grey. Weeks later Bob Newman discovers a woman's body floating into the coast of Cornwall. Shown a photograph, Paula is stunned to realise it is the same woman she hauled out of the Pacific, six thousand miles away. Tweed senses a worldwide menace, tracks Vincent Bernard Moloch, creator of AMBECO, largest conglomerate on the planet. Why have strange domes appeared, overlooking the ocean off California? Who is 'Vanity' Richmond, the woman with no identity, companion to Moloch? What links ‘expatriates’ in California to a similar community in Cornwall? A tremor of panic shatters London, Washington. Tweed encounters the formidable Mrs Benyon, Joel Brand, an Armenian, 'Vanity' Richmond and Linda Standish, private investigator. One is murdered by a mysterious exterminator, The Accountant. The tempo accelerates — Paula and Newman investigate AMBECO. Crisis explodes into titanic catastrophe - part of a continent collapses into the ocean. The final battle detonates in Cornwall.”
