In the middle of a gala political banquet, Fenton Hardy is kidnapped. Then a mysterious caller outlines his terrifying demand: unless he receives twenty million dollars, Fenton Hardy -- along with many thousands of innocent victms -- will be infected with a fatal virus. New York City will turn into a ghost town!
Police Chief Sam Peterson, Hardy's ex-partner in the NYPD, immediately takes charge. His first official act is to order Frank and Joe off the case. But the brother detectives are too worried about their father to heed the chief's warning -- even if it means entering a strange underground world far below the city streets. A world where darkness rules, the mob is the only law, and murder lurks behind every shadow....
