Synopsis

Ex-security officer Ralph Bentley is determined to get the money he deserves. After being fired by a millionaire in an embezzlement scandal, the British Secret Service-trained Bentley decides to take over the ritzy Shady Glen School and hold the wealthiest young students for ransom. Having designed the security system himself, one would think Bentley was in a prime position for success. Enter Ozzie Paxton, a young kid who enjoys a prank, especially one based on computer technology. Slipping through the school's hidden passageways, Ozzie in now the school's only hope. Ozzie has a chance to put into action the same kind of mind-to-mind warfare he has been playing on the computer for years. Only this time the stakes are real.
