"The author of ETERNAL WORLD seamlessly combines history, biotechnology, action and adventure in this high-concept thriller. John Smith has a special gift that seems more like a curse: he can access other peoples thoughts. The CIA honed his skills until he was one of their most powerful operatives, but Smith fled the Agency and now works as a private consultant. But now Smith is unexpectedly plunged into dangerous waters when his latest client, billionaire software genius Everett Sloan, hires him to investigate a former employee and search his thoughts for some very valuable intellectual property he's stolen."--Provided by the publisher.
