Dr. Jonathan Martin [Ch. 1]: The Amsterdam Fault, a volcanic fissure opening into the subterranean fires miles below New York. Sea erosion has sealed up that vent, but a few depth charges will smash through and bring about an earthquake and a tidal wave that will be catastrophic. The Ghost isn't bluffing! He *can* destroy New York!
