Investigative journalist Lauren Jacobs has a key that could unlock secrets to the indefinite energy research of Nikola Tesla. She's being followed, however, by the world's most relentless tabloid reporter, dashingly handsome yet highly annoying Derek Rourke.
In Colorado Springs to seek answers about Tesla from a noted history professor and author, Lauren soon finds herself as the prime suspect in a murder investigation. Now faced with clearing her name, she dodges zealous attendees at a romance writers’ convention, enthusiastic crowds at a male strip club, and her long-standing nemesis, Helga the Horrible.
To complicate matters further, as she searches for the lock that fits the key, a clandestine terrorist organization has latched onto her and Rourke. Together, they must team up to find Tesla's files and keep them out of terrorist hands.
With help from her con-man father, a couple of well-connected Druids, skillful male pole dancers, and a local cop from Lauren's secret past, they might manage to prove her innocence and save the world.
