The story is an explosive cocktail mixed by the author to drink in one gulp.
She felt uneasy. It was the waiting. She didn’t like being kept waiting very long, even if she was about be received by the President in person.
Ingredients? Action. Mystery. Spy story. Traces of science fiction.
With two unforgettable characters: Cyclonette, a sexy and dynamic agent of the Special Affairs Dept., and her antagonist G. Hunt, famous scientist, called the Wizard for his unusual powers.
The plot is an explosion of astonishing events, from the frantic search for the terrific Red Sky project through China and Russia to the hi-tech marvels of the Wizard, from the great passions to the final struggle.
Cyclonette vs. the Wizard. It's a match to the bitter end. Because Supermind, the fabulous invention of the Wizard and his Bright Dawn plan are a danger for mankind.
Who'll be the winner?
She tried to settle into a more comfortable position on the nineteenth century couch and stretched her legs on the plush carpet.

She got up, took a few steps around a huge walnut table, then stopped in front of an old picture over the unlit fireplace.
She looked around the room and felt uncomfortable again.
She wondered why the White House seemed so unwelcoming.
A hand was laid for a moment on her shoulder. Cyclonette spun round.
The President tried to smile at her, showing long, yellowish teeth.

He seemed to appreciate what he saw. He tried smiling again, but without much success.

- You’re right, dear. The White House is a bit damp – agreed the President – Come here, Cyclonette. I’ll fix you some real good champagne.
