Joaquin and Hattie are done playing around. They've been outwitted again and again, but the Headmaster, Faidan, everyone responsible for Aidan's disappearance—it's their turn now. The Investigation Squad has a secret weapon their adversaries don't know about, and if everything goes according to plan, they'll have the high ground for the first time. But who knows what their enemies are truly capable of? And if Joaquin and Hattie are taken off guard, they're going to need an exit strategy. The season 1 finale of In Astra.
