Moment Of Madness

SearchCameron is kidnapped from inside PROBE Control, and there are few clues as to where he’s gone. C.R. Grover leads the search for Cameron, but he finds that even Cameron’s own niece – the only family member anyone can find – has little knowledge of Cameron’s private life. Cameron finds himself trapped in a cage, with an interrogator repeatedly asking him where and how someone will arrive. Cameron eventually recognizes his captor as a soldier who he once conditioned during the Korean War to give the enemy false information, and expresses great remorse…but that doesn’t mean he won’t keep fighting to escape.
