It begins with a mysterious disappearance.... It will end with a world on the edge of destruction.
Twenty years ago, Derrick Sayler made a fantastic breakthrough, then vanished off the face of the earth. When Michael Rook, an environmental engineer with a deadly secret, finds a car belonging to the missing genius in a remote Oregon lake, the question of Sayler's fate appears to be answered. But Rook's discovery uncovers something far more immediate... and infinitely more dangerous.
Willoughby Bane, Sayler's former partner, is poised to unveil Magic Mirror, a magnetic-levitation space launch facility in the Canadian wilderness, but he cannot escape his obsession with his long-lost partner. Rook's search for the unbelievable truth will put him on a collision course with Bane and Magic Mirror.
