A young agent for an international trade agency - the narrator - has remained the strong friend of a college professor who studies ancient science. The agent becomes the subject of an assassination attempt, and finds that his professor friend is not surprised. The professor has known all along that there are powerful people who seek the knowledge of the acceleration of time, and of the words that make it useful.
