With the flick of a wrist, Ian Michaels throws a leather satchel containing what could be his greatest discovery out the window, just moments before a horrific car crash leaves him clinging to life. The only witness to the accident, Celeste Noel, watches in fear as two men search through the wreckage but walk away empty-handed, without even a glance at the lifeless driver. In the days that follow, Celeste, an average fourteen-year-old girl and quite content with life in her small town, is forced to follow her instincts as she hunts for answers to the growing mystery of the driver and his pursuers—when she isn’t even sure of the questions. An examination of the wrecked vehicle and the driver’s hospital room prove worthless in supplying answers, for both Celeste and the two ex-marines turned corporate “problem-solvers.” Any early sense of adventure is quickly replaced with fear as Celeste struggles to stay one step ahead of the two unknown men in a race for the missing satchel, that eventually turns into a race for her life.
