In the year 2036, the world's best boarding school is the Stansbury School. The students, better known as specimens, are screened at a young age and then given twelve years of the finest education-and developmental drug regimen-available. Graduates go on to dominate in all the top colleges, Forbes 500 companies, and government positions. But when several alumni are murdered, school officials decide to keep the police in the dark. They discreetly ask the school's valedictorian to solve the mystery, but he discovers that the most obvious culprit, the school's chemically-imbalanced delinquent-and his own nemesis-is being framed. Together, the two unlikely allies uncover a massive conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the Stansbury administration and the United States government.

"Failure is not an option at the Stansbury School. It's the year 2036, and prestigious Stansbury trains carefully screened, pharmaceutically enhanced specimens (as the students are called) to take their places as top leaders and thinkers in education, business, and government. But a few problems have developed. A Senate investigation is underway, finals and graduation are drawing near, and some of Stansbury's less successful graduates are being murdered. Narrator Paul Michael Garcia is at his best giving gravity and emotion to the voices of the valedictorian, the punk, the misfit, and the brainy beauty, who band together to solve the murders. Kalstein weaves biting dystopian discourse with teen romance to create likable characters and a surprising, moving epilogue. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
