Summary (From the publisher):

'There are many cauldrons seething in the world today but this one is a monster', Tweed warned.

The body of a girl, washed ashore on the Californian coast, is found by Paula Grey. Weeks later, another body floats into the rugged coast of Cornwall, discovered by Bob Newman. Shown a photograph, Paula is stunned to realise it is the same dead woman she hauled out of the water six thousand miles away.

Tweed, already sensing an invisible worldwide menace, is tracking the movements of Vincent Bernard Moloch, creator of AMBECO, largest conglomerate on the planet. Why are strange dome shaped buildings appearing on summits overlooking the ocean off California? Who is 'Vanity' Richmond, a woman with no identity, attractive companion to Moloch? Why have all Moloch's previous lady-friends been murdered?

What links English 'expatriates' settled in California with a similar community in Cornwall? A tremor of international crisis paralyses London and Washington as Tweed and his team struggle to detect it's source. Tweed encounters the formidable Mrs. Benyon, the sinister American Joel Brand, 'Vanity' Richmond and the mysterious Linda Standish. Two are fated not to survive the professional exterminator, The Accountant.

The temp accelerates as Paula and Newman penetrate AMBECO. Crisis explodes into catastrophe as part of a whole continent collapses into the ocean.
