Elusion is technology that virtually transports people on extreme adventures and to amazing locations. Regan’s father was the mastermind and main programmer behind the popular technology until his unexpected death. Now, Regan’s childhood friend, Patrick, is picking up where her father left off. As Elusion gets closer to a national release, Regan starts hearing rumors of dangerous glitches, deadly flaws, and addictive issues with the software. In her attempts to defend her late father’s reputation and support her friend Patrick, she does her own research only to discover that Elusion really can kill. As she tries to share her findings with those closest to her, she realizes that people have been keeping secrets from her—the most important truth is that her father is still alive and in desperate need of help.
