Increasing levels of betrayal, seduction and murder slowly begin to erode the sanctuary of higher education, eventually threatening to entrap Child Psychologist Dr. Brad Stillman in their web of deceit and lies. The deeper Brad becomes embroiled in these maniacal threats to humanity, the more he questions his own mission to empower the minds of young people and guide them in creating a better future for those less fortunate. His clinic at Statesville University, one of the best in the nation in the treatment of emotionally disturbed children, provides a solid base for teaching and reaching his humanitarian goals. But, will it continue to be the best platform for him? Deceived by the beauty and brilliance of his irresistible teaching assistant, Brad is drawn into a conspiracy that will shake the very foundation of the country. An ingenious assassination plot evolves as Dr. Stillman discovers his life in academe is merely the stage for an international terrorist plot.
