Emily and her other Home School Detective friends are giving a concert at the college where her father teaches. There they meet Astrid, a student who wants their help in recovering her high-powered laptop computer. Not only is it valuable, but it also contains the only copy of her Master's thesis. Astrid thinks it was stolen, but she acts suspicious herself. Emily and Josh wonder if more is involved than Astrid is letting on. Of course more is not involved--instead much more is!
Once again the Home School Detectives use their wits, courage and help from a higher source to challenge a crook with a grand scheme.
