In spite of all the security measures in place, this morning an in-flight hijacking took place. Already overworked Frank Hargrove, head of airline safety at the Santa Clara airport, soon realized this hijacking was like none he had investigated before. It made little sense and should not have happened. Of all the planes landing at this airport, why this flight? To explain the clues and to help unravel the mystery of why the hijacking took place, Frank is forced to explore an ancient discipline and consult with specialists in areas well beyond his realm of experience and expertise. The answers he uncovers shock him. The end result is a voyage not to be missed.
