About the Book
Five college students prepare for a trip to Washington DC through the State College of New York, with their knowledgeable professor, Dr. Luas Hans. Mary Abrams, Maggie Werks, Larry Daniels, Bill Moss and Glenn Taste plan to attend the 11 Day World Summit, a meeting of the world’s greatest political minds. These politicians will address and propose solutions to some of the most foreboding issues facing the world.
But from its onset, the students’ trip is plagued by strange occurrences, spanning unnatural events to dangerous and odd encounters. As the students begin to unlock the mysteries surrounding their trip, they realize that dangers come from the most unlikely places and that the answers to their most burning questions may just come from within themselves.
