The only noticeable effect is that high-speed microprocessors in the disruption beam, will cease to function.Kimberly realizes that the disruptor might change the balance of power in the Middle East. It could stop high-tech weapons from functioning while low tech weapons, such as guns, would be unaffected.Kimberly, Paul, their twins, and a pair of physicist Alphas become enmeshed in Middle East intrigue and find themselves targets of an American intelligent agent and agents of Israels intelligence service.
