Summary
In 1868, the first students of the MIT prepare to graduate at a time when the word technology represents a bold concept. A few weeks before the graduation, a series of technological attacks in Boston spread a wave of terror through the population. Harvard mobilizes its influence to direct the hysteria and fear against MIT. With the future of their school and careers at stake, the first MIT students must employ their particular skills to stop the attacks and uncover the mastermind. The city's fate relies on Marcus Mansfield, a Civil War veteran determined to repay MIT's founder for taking a chance on enrolling a working class machinist, as well as fellow Tech students, brash Bob Richards, meticulous Edwin Hoyt and the first female secretly studying at MIT, the eccentric and brilliant Ellen Swallow. Featuring a world in flux, a recent war, and conflict between the forces of progress and tradition, the stage is set for a pulse-raising historical thriller which resonates with the world we recognise around us
