Agents Frontenac and Guinness are on the killer's trail. But as they delve deeper into the hidden, magical world around them, they are haunted by a terrifying question. Is the killer doing the right thing?

Imagine that by solving the riddles of the treasure hunt, you had the potential to save the world. Is that cool, or what? Well, imagine that the very book you were enjoying this story in contained its own awesome treasure hunt, hidden inside every panel, and you'd have Beyonders #4! Even cooler.
