Toby Ryan wanted to put the tumultuous events of his past behind him and start afresh with his wife and twin boys. So when he was given the opportunity to do just that, working with Dr Niles no less, it was an opportunity he couldn’t turn down. He gladly accepted his role at the university on a secret project rumoured to be funded by the government and NSA. His own sons, possessing their father’s Mindflyer abilities, astounded the doctors with their skills despite their infancy. But their potential had not gone unnoticed. Soon a call revealed a terrifying situation, while Toby was working someone had broken in to his home, drugged his wife, and kidnapped one of his children. There was no doubt in his mind that someone intended to weaponize his son and use him for their own gains. Now, whoever did this is tying up loose ends, erasing data, even lives to remain hidden. Toby must put his trust in the sole survivor of the group which executed his son’s kidnapping. But, as he soon discovers, there are no limits to the lengths these people will go to in order to ensure the hunt for his son meets with failure.
