Behind a hidden door in the principal's office lies a hidden training facility for secret agents. Today, grumpy old Mr. Nickers calls eighth grader Johnny Clue down to the principal's office. But Johnny's not in trouble--yet. Through the secret door, Johnny meets Jericha White, the top secret agent-in-training in Bethesda. She doesn't work for the CIA, though, nor the FBI. Jericha and Johnny begin a mission: rescuing Johnny's father from Russia. But as they start seeing the true purpose of the black ops facility, the darkness of having to do what you're told starts to overtake them.
