Ignore the cover's sycophantic praise from Rachel Billington and Ludovic Kennedy --- this is pure hokum, probably owing publication to the author's name alone. A childhood operation gives William Rod (Goldenrod) this sight. Thereafter, he can see through solid objects at will. Add supersensitive hearing, a dog specially trained to attack armed men and the ability to concentrate an hour's strength into one minute (as taught by an old fakir) and you've everything required to thwart hijackers disrupting the Rods' India-England flight. Poorly constructed, pedantically written, terrible cover/illustrations; it's simple enough to appeal to the less demanding but there are lots better.
