The Sign of the Tiger by Alan Nourse (w/Meyer):
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"You will meet:

Julian Bohr. A man without mercy. His ruthless ambitions reach beyond the stars.
Harvey Alexander. Not a man of steel. But amazingly adept at sidestepping destruction.
Libby Allison. Brilliant, beautiful. Her love for Bahr forced her into acts unspeakable.
Carl Englehardt. A king of financiers. His wealth was a club to4cnock over nations.
Frank Carmine. Loyal to Bahr in all things from meditation to murder. But he proved that even faithful dogs go mad.
Paul McKenzie. The silent Scot. He watched and waited and plotted to topple the Colossus."

Radioactive material is stolen from a plant; how was it removed? How will it be used? And what of the mysterious Aliens?
