A repeating nightmare that hounds him night after night that he can't ignore- something tells him it's not just a dream, it feels too real. Thompson's doctor, military psychiatrist Josh Cain, is summoned to a church tower near the White House. He thinks he is there to talk down another suicidal ex-Marine. But the man he finds tells him of a plot to kill Thompson, revealing secrets he can't possibly have known - just seconds before a sniper's bullet takes him out . . . Battles have been fought man to man, then machine to machine, and even in cyberspace. But now there is a different battlefield emerging- human consciousness and the fight for our minds. What readers are saying- ***** 'A classy, intelligent and reflective investigative thriller.' ***** 'A layered plot, engaging characters and a spine chilling ring of truth to the plot, which lured me in and kept me trapped until the final page.' ***** 'A real page turner with plenty of surprises and twists. Great read.' ***** 'THE BEST BOOK THAT I'VE READ ALL YEAR!'

Reviews

A vividly drawn, propulsive thriller, that also probes the effects of grief and trauma * The Times, Books of the Year *
This stylish, riveting thriller explodes into a world of 'psychic spies' and dark plots to undermine the world * Daily Mail *
An assured page-turner ... it combines action and foreign locations with big ideas a la Dan Brown * Sunday Times *
This is a highly original, electrifying read ... In less assured hands this could have seemed absurd, but Cook's crisp, hard-boiled prose makes the outlandish feel alarmingly plausible. * The Times *
Frightening in its subject matter and brilliantly written. It's a book you will not want to put down * Crime Review *
