This is the seventh issue in the Dusty Ayres series. These are science-fiction stories of a near-future war that has ravaged America. "You will instruct Captain Ayres to proceed to Washington H.Q. by staff train at 2:25. He is to be provided with escort to station and placed in custody of Staff Sergeant Bolton..." Dusty read this radiogram with amazement. First H.Q. grounded him, then sent this crazy order. But the order did not worry the gods of war, for they knew that the very fires of hell itself would sweep across war-torn America before the devilish plot behind that command could be smashed—before Dusty Ayres could learn the secret of the white death!
