The story is familiar; a humanoid robot is on the loose and needs to be stopped. The twist is that the robot isn't aware that it's a robot and has become the President of the United States of America! Furthermore, the FBI and the CIA have no idea who the robot is, only that on April 1st, 2004, it will explode with the force of a small nuclear bomb.
Brandon Denver reached for the phone, still shaking his head at the text on his computer screen that he had just spent hours pulling together. Quickly, he punched the number of his partner, Kelly O'Clair.
"Hey Kel, it's Denny."
"Denny? Why'd you take so long to get back to me? I've been worried."
Brandon tipped back in his chair and looked over the screen, hoping to find something new but knowing it was unlikely.
"Sorry Babe, but you're not going to believe what I've discovered about our friend on the Washington flight. Seems that it he didn't board the plane at La Guardia."
"But that's impossible," said O'Clair, "I watched him board myself."
Brandon gave a small snicker.
"Well, according to airport security records, he didn't."
There was a moments hesitation before O'Clair replied.
"So how did he do that? Who is he? David Copperfield?"
"That's something we still don't know. All we do know is that he isn't exactly leaving a paper trail behind him as he moves. It's like trying to play chess when you don't know where all the pieces are." He paused for effect, then continued. "Seems like we have something of a mystery to solve, Nancy Drew!"
