True terror comes from deep within.Dr. Lydia South, a cutting-edge neuroscientist, has perfected a lucrative, top secret technology that can map secrets of the brain. But Lydia's past is inextricably bound with that of a brilliant but deranged sociopath, a man with the ability to blend in anywhere around the world, sow seeds of destruction, and escape unscathed--and he'll stop at nothing to remain anonymous. It's a dizzying case for the straight-shooting Lt. Elliot Elliot, aka E-Squared or Double E. As the former cop untangles the madman's cleverly constructed web of false leads and dead ends, he's drawn deep into the human mind--and even deeper into the mind of a monster. And the only hope for Elliot and Lydia escaping alive may rest in the unpredictable hands of an inexplicably gifted four-year old boy.
