But the new antigravity technology is stolen by a wealthy and ruthless industrialist who plans to use the antigravity machine to break into Fort Knox, Kentucky. The theft is blamed on the inventor’s estranged cousin, Ryan Marshall, who must embark on a nationwide search for the real criminals, hoping to clear his name and reunite his family. This is a fast paced white-knuckle thriller leading law enforcement officials on weeklong chase that begins at Stanford University and ends at Fort Knox.
