QUOTE: "You saw it with your own eyes... He was Flash, the fastest man alive... Until a super-villain with the power to transmute the elements turned him into a gleaming, golden statue! It's heartstopping tragedy—and TV at its finest—on Fernando... Live!" —TV talk show host Fernando

SUMMARY:  The Flash has been seemingly transmuted into solid gold by the Alchemist on live television! Fortunately, things are not what they appear. After using his speed to escape this elemental death-trap, the crimson comet discovers why the Alchemist has been stalking Moe Migliani, the crooked lawyer he first met in prison. Migliana has stolen and hidden the miniaturized medical computer developed by S.T.A.R. Labs using the power of the Philosopher's Stone! Migliana's guilt is clear, but neither the Flash nor the Alchemist know where he's hidden the device. Can the fastest man alive close the case in time to stop Linda Park from leaving Keystone City?
