McGee reluctantly visits his high school after the unique computer password he used as a teenager is linked to the murder of a department of defense contractor. The case escalates when an intruder breaks into McGee's home in an attempt to steal his archaic high school computer.
Tim, while angered at his father for burning his tap shoes, crafted a virus to target the Department of Defense. The virus was later copied and tampered by his old flame Chloe to deposit rounding errors in accounting into a holding account.
Tim's dreams, aside from writing books, had also entailed tap dancing.
John McGee was revealed to have had desires to be a tap dancer just like his son.
