Nick Slate is living in style, with none other than Thomas Edison, the power-mad leader of the Accelerati, looking out for his every need. Edison is blackmailing Nick into reconstructing Tesla’s greatest invention, a machine that would allow the Accelerati to control the world’s energy. Nick had to join the evil organization in order to save his father and brother–Edison made that clear. But that doesn’t mean Nick has to like it. Yet his deepest fear is that he will. The moral dilemma is threatening to split his personality. With Vince in Scotland, Caitlin and Mitch on their way to Princeton, and Petula’s whereabouts unknown, it’s up to Nick alone to locate the machine’s last three missing pieces–which are the most powerful of all, capable of shattering time and collapsing space.
