Publisher's Summary

The author of The Eternal World seamlessly combines history, biotechnology, action, and adventure in this high-concept thriller in the spirit of James Rollins, Brad Thor, and Douglas Preston.
John Smith has a special gift that seems more like a curse: He can access other people's thoughts. He hears the songs stuck in their heads, their most private traumas and fears, the painful memories they can't let go. 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, trying to keep the dark potential of his gift in check - and himself out of trouble.
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 - a tech whiz kid named Eli Preston - and search his thoughts for some very valuable intellectual property he's stolen. Before John can probe Preston's mind, his identity is compromised, and he's on a run for his life with Sloan's young associate, Kelsey.
Hunted by shadowy enemies with deep resources and unknown motives, John and Kelsey must go off the grid. John knows their only hope for survival is using his powers to their fullest - even if means putting his own sanity at risk.

Familiar story but still worth it

It's a fairly common "human weapon" story: The operative shaped by a crappy childhood, toughened by the military and desensitized by covert missions who now is out on his own, rich, and paired with a sexy young thing. Add to this plot a somewhat familiar storyline of having psychic abilities that are used for both good and evil. The notable twist is that it's skillfully written and told in a time travel way that doesn't lose or confuse you. Instead it holds your intense interest in two, sometimes three, storylines. To be candid, though, half way through I was ready to give it 5 shining stars, but then in the middle it wasn't that original and it became maybe even a little preachy, but once you get over that hump it is a roller coaster of action and page turning. Oh, and Bronson Pinchot - BRAVO!

Fan of Farnsworth

Imaginative, as always. Mr. Farnsworth manages to come up with the most implausible characters (his first three novels were about the President's vampire) and make them come to life. His plots are always extremely entertaining. He can't write fast enough for me.
