It began when a pedestrian got hit by a cab in New York City. No doubt it was the only motor mishap in the history of creation that reached out among the stars -- for far out in space a signal was registered: "Something has gone wrong. . . ."
And something had gone wrong, for the doctors discovered their accident patient had "two" hearts. It was the beginning of the discovery that the Earth had been invaded by ten such creatures from Outer Space.
Every effort was made to learn their purpose. An orbital flight was launched to spot alien bodies -- only to be destroyed in space. One of the alien men was captured -- but no threat of pain or death could unlock the secret in his brain. Something had gone wrong. And somehow, some way had to be found to make it right -- before the threat of danger overwhelmed all mankind.
