Locke owes a favor, and he'll do whatever it takes to honor that - return to Boston where he'll be hunted, befriend a stuck-up girl to get information, put other people in danger. Along the way, he'll find answers to questions he didn't ask, questions about Jenna Fox and redemption and fate.
It's a Favor, with a capital F, someone calling in all the chips spent by others trying to get the teen safely to the West Coast after his escape from Gartsbro's human lab, where the good doctor placed his mind into an improved body, generations after it was illegally downloaded just before Locke's untimely death.
There's big money at stake and the lives of thousands of people denied Citizen rights because their grandparents chose the wrong side in a political dispute, too. A leader of the Resistance in secret prison being tortured to get the account number before those billions of duros revert to whatever country the secret account is in, and the deadline is just days away.
So Locke has an impossibly short time to finagle his way into Security Secretary's household through his teenage daughter, find secret maps to the secret prison, rescue the prisoner and get the account number to the Resistance... while not letting anyone know he was born over 270 years ago and is classified as non-human under current law because of the percentage of Bio-Gel coursing through his body.
Is the prisoner still alive and sane after 11 years in solitary?
Can Locke really infiltrate Raine's posh inner circle without giving himself away?
How will the Resistance deal with the other information that he uncovers?
This third volume of The Jenna Fox Chronicles weaves the many threads and characters of the series into a heart-pounding conclusion as Locke discovers surprises and truths about himself, Jenna, Kara, and humankind.
