“Mitchell Wilson introduces us to Nicholas Rennet, world-famous American physicist at a crucial point of his life; he is going to Russia at the invitation of, and to work with, an equally famous Russian scientist, Dmitri Petrovich Goncharoff.  Although Nick vehemently rejects any guilt about his part in the production of the bomb, a strange spiritual paralysis is beginning to grip his work.   His one last hope is that research with Goncharoff will help him burst out of his creative torpor.  But in Moscow, an instantaneous barrier of suspicion develops between the two men as they find themselves locked in competition over a new theory – one on which Goncharoff’s career depends.”
