Pat O'Toole and his brother, Coop, are on the run from an enemy that specializes in hiding in plain sight. Along with their new companion, Kate, they've narrowly escaped a cultlike community situated beneath the streets of New York City. Kate has lived underground since birth, and the world above thrills her, but it's treacherous as well. With the cult's leader -- Kate’s grandfather -- hatching a new scheme of global consequence, the three runaways may be the only ones who can stop him. Will they face him head-on, or will they spend the rest of their lives as fugitives?

"I really enjoyed the idea of this whole community that lived hundreds (thousands?) of feet below New York City, where most of the inhabitants hadn't been above or seen the sky in 25+ years. They didn't trust the government and believed they were ruining the environment. So they removed themselves and set up their own version of utopia. But was it really a community, or a utopia? Or was it a cult with a megalomaniac obsessed with power and vengeance as their leader? "- Jan
