|Something sinister is brewing in the quiet town of Odyssey. And it‘s not just the usual fast one by resident rogue Bart Rathbone. A strange sense of foreboding is in the air, and not even Whit can put his finger on it. The kids are flocking to the hot, new after-school place; while back at Whit‘s End, the windows are collecting dust - the ones that aren‘t being smashed, that is. Things haven‘t been the same since media conglomerate Novacom moved in. Even Connie turns to mush whenever Novacom‘s new hire, Robert Mitchell, is around. Are the kids - maybe even Odyssey itself - losing that small town innocence that always kept them out of harm‘s way?|
