Publisher Comments:

When Adam Eddington, a gifted marine biology  student, makes the acquaintance of blond and beautiful  Kali Cutter at Kennedy International Airport on  his way to Portugal to spend the summer working for  the renowned scientist Dr. O'Keefe, he has no idea  that this seemingly chance meeting will set into  motion a chain of events he will be unable to  stop.

Caught between Kali's seductive  wiles and the trusting adoration of Dr. O'Keefe's  daughter, Poly, Adam finds himself enmeshed in a  deadly power struggle between two groups of people,  only one of which can have right on its side. As the  ddanger escalates, Adam must make a decision that  could affect the entire world--which side is he  on?

This is a sort of a thriller, with hints of science fiction and romance. I didn't like it quite as well as L'Engle's more speculative stuff (there's a reason I never read any of these as a kid), but it was still a good story. Sometimes the main character seemed frustratingly naive, but I guess he IS just a teenager...
