Carina's senior year is spiraling downward. Fast.
Both her mother and her uncle, the only two family members she's ever known, are dead. Their deaths were accidents, unfortunate results of the highly confidential research they performed for a national security organization. Or so she's been told.
She's not buying it.
After finding a unique code hidden beneath the stone in a ring her mother left to her, Carina goes straight to the only family she has left: her boyfriend, Tanner.
Following a trail of clues by solving a series of cryptic puzzles, Carina and Tanner are on the run to prevent her family's work from falling into the wrong hands.
The people Carina loved kept dangerous secrets. Secrets that make her question the life she's been living up to now. Her life is on the line, but more importantly, so is Tanner's. And if she fails? He dies.
