After the store went out of business, her father left home to participate in a clinical trial at Nutrexo, a Seattle-based food corporation. When Andi learns that the study isn’t as harmless as he believes, she’s determined to warn him—but every attempt to contact him leads to a dead end.

Cyrus becomes even more intrigued when he finds out about the protest she’s planning at the company, and vows to figure out what’s going on.
But when Andi and Cyrus team up to investigate, everything goes horribly wrong.
