The review of this Book prepared by Gary Moles

The book begins with Christopher Snow and his friends investigating the disappearance of some children. What they discover is an unexplainable spiderweb of mystery and intrigue. They find the criminals that kidnapped the children along with a dimension/time travel machine that causes nothing but misery. This story can be quite confusing if not followed closely.
