The NYPD scrambles to find it, but they’re not the only ones looking. Whoever has the lightening rod could control parts of the city in an emergency or even bring down planes flying into LaGuardia Airport. With time running out and lives on the line, Zig takes matters into his own hands and goes rogue…with NYPD lieutenant Laura Ash hot on his heels. From thrilling chases through Central Park to pulse-pounding escapes across rooftops at night, The Lightning Rod races toward one explosive conclusion after another as both Zig and Ash become convinced that there may be more to these thefts than meets the eye….
