Storyline

Gambling losses and various lies told to conceal them finally catch up to Larry Bolton. His wife Peg asks for a divorce and he is fired from his job as a truck driver for March Chemical on the same day. He retaliates by abducting Peg and hijacking a March truck loaded with unstable pure potassium. The material can be easily detonated with water and Bolton plans to restrain Peg in the truck and use it to blow up the March plant. Dan Mathews, a policewoman, and a demolitions expert utilize a high-risk ruse to position themselves for a last-ditch attempt to prevent a cataclysmic disaster. Written by Sam Spear

Trivia

The "March Chemical Company" gate was the same set as the lumberyard in Highway Patrol: The Judge (1958), which aired two weeks earlier. See more »

Goofs

When Bolton pulls up to the disabled car, it is completely off the road and to the right of the white line. After the camera angle changes, the front of the car is well over the white line and blocking the road. In the final scene as Matthews and the policewoman are walking to the car, it is again to the right of the white line. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: There is no criminal more potentially dangerous than the one who commits a crime out of a desire for revenge. On the 23rd of March, a letter delivered to the home of Larry and Peggy Fulton triggered a revenge crime that was to involve Dan Mathews and the Highway Patrol in one of its most harrowing cases.
