Synopsis for "War of the Mind Readers"

Alien ships from Unarus approach Earth to destroy it. One of the aliens descends to earth to face Merle Mallory -who previously had discovered that a well-dressed man was a florist by feeling a rose thorn in his hand, seeing the polem in his hat and a flower petal between his money- and ordered him to tell the leaders to surrender, if not, they would destroy earth. After this, the leaders decided not to surrender, but to attack, and Merle Mallory discovers that the Uranian was lying and they were going to use fake ships to deprive earth from their atomic bombs.
