According to the police, the first Converter had been stolen on Friday night.
Exactly what do you intend to do with the Converter if I sell it to you?
Finally, they had taken the decisive step of stealing the Converter.
Bending himself had cut them a week before to install the Converter.
His grin was running as high an energy output as that he claimed for the Converter.
The second they started to open the Converter, it would begin to fuse.
When the burglars had cut the leads to the Converter, everything in the lab had stopped.
He led them over to the wall where the Converter had been hidden.
They had known about the Converter only two weeks, and they had already struck.
