Telephones stop working, and there is no internet access. People start talking like robots-even Claudia Rowe-and more and more of them seem to be wearing strange badges. It all adds up to onething: the Demon Headmaster must be back. Dinah's search leads her to the university where she finds him developing a Hyperbrain-a computer with superhuman intelligence and deadly potential. Suddenly she's trapped.
