Synopsis
Ken visits his friend, Tony Kraft, in Zurich. Tony's girlfriend, Ariane Poirot, becomes attracted to Ken which makes Tony jealous. Tony hires two men to kill Ken, but they secretly plan on turning him over to Interpol. Attacked, Ken buries them alive with an avalanche, killing the hired men and putting Tony in the hospital. Ken reveals his powers to Ariane and attempts to protect her from Interpol, who are interested in Connell following the attack. Ariane is furious with him for not killing the people pursuing them and leaves Ken. He returns to America, and, the following day, learns that she had been killed, supposedly by terrorists.
