Frank and Joe travel to California where they investigate the leader of a utopian community and his followers to see if they intend to sabotage the oil industry.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
I grabbed the closest chair and hurled it at the huge window behind the desk.

Nothing. Not even a crack.

"Safety glass," I told my brother, Frank.

"Standard in an office building. Especially on the twenty-second floor," Frank answered. He didn't look up from the computer. His fingers scurried over the keyboard.

I grabbed the chair and slammed it against the glass again.
Bam! Bam! Bam! I could feel the impact all the way up my arm bones to my shoulders.

The smell of smoke was getting stronger. We had to get out of here. The floor was shut down. The elevators were off - not that you should use elevators in a fire. The doors to the stairs were locked tight.

Somebody wanted us dead.
