Tom and his friends are trapped in a quarantine lockdown in this
third novel in Tom Swift Inventors’ Academy—perfect for fans of The
Hardy Boys or Alex Rider.
Tom has always tried to play down his pseudo celebrity status at the
academy. So, the last thing he wants is for a reporter’s son to follow
him around for an article on the school. When this extends to one of the
biggest field trips of the year—an overnight lock-in at Swift
Enterprises—Tom couldn’t be less pleased.
With his new shadow in tow, Tom expects the night to be uneventful at
best. But when the facility suddenly goes into quarantine mode, the
overnight lock-in turns into a building-wide lockdown. Tom and his
friends are left trapped in their respective rooms, with no way to
communicate the outside world. As they make their way through the
facility using methods that are a little more…creative…than normal, Tom
and his friends start realizing that there is more to this quarantine
than meets the eye. But with no way to call for help, it’s up to them to
not only escape, but also find out what—or who—is behind the lockdown.
