Dennis Sommer's gig as school tabloid reporter couldn't sink any lower. Interviewing a wealthy town resident is the ultimate contradiction of cool. When he finds the subject of his lukewarm periodical is a stone cold corpse, the police drag the young journalist in for their own version of questions and answers about the millionaire's mysterious death. Fear and confusion colliding, Dennis Sommers turns to the one person he belives can make any sense of it, Matthew Livingston. A genius of deduction and lateral thinking, Matthew will test science and theory to prove a murder was committed. With the ever confident Sandra Small at his side, Dennis is dispatched into an investigation that leads him into the very soul of evil. Crime, greed, and power show no remorse as a maniac builds a platform for mass terror, a platform only equalled by the determination of Matthew Livingston to stop it.
