The mysterious disappearance of an unparalleled genius shakes the community. Has Weissman gone bad? Two brilliant students join forces in a high-stakes mountain chase, battling danger, vengeance, and each other to rescue their beloved mentor, now suspected of terrorism. Kevin Morgan is a fun-loving, geeky engineering student at tiny Colorado Institute of Mining and Technology. Maggie is the smoldering and aristocratic goddess of Stanford Engineering. What do they have in common? Absolutely nothing, except remarkable intellects, quick wits, and a shared awe for Dr. Anthony Weissman, patent multimillionaire and deeply wounded recluse. Weissman blames himself—and tight coupling—for the death of his wife and son. He moves from MIT to Colorado hoping for improvement, but finds none. He’s morose, the students dull, with Kevin the sole exception. When the provost interferes with his teaching, Weissman storms off campus and disappears. Fearing the worst, Kevin and Maggie race to find him, head-butting their way through impossible circumstances. Though overmatched on both fronts, Kevin does his best to simultaneously rescue his mentor and court the intense Maggie. As the news worsens, they face heartrending decisions until finally, explosively, they locate Weissman burrowed under a decrepit mining shack where nothing is as it seems.
