Introduction. Listen, Paul,' Harry said
Listen, Paul,' Harry said. 'We have a problem. That volcano's getting ready to explode.'
Dreyfus stopped smiling. 'I know it was hard for you up there, Harry,' he said, 'but you mustn't get excited. Nothing much happened.'
'Nothing much happened? said Harry. 'Paul, I was there. That was a big earthquake.'
Harry Dalton is a scientist. He knows a lot about volcanoes. His boss, Paul Dreyfus, sends him to the small town of Dante's Peak on a mountain in the north of the USA. Harry thinks that the town has problems: he thinks that the volcano above the town is going to explode. Paul thinks that Harry is wrong. But is he wrong? Is the mountain going to explode? How many people have to die before Paul Dreyfus knows that Harry is right?
