Xander Stone, after being hit by lightning, was given the gift, or curse, of being able to hear people’s thoughts. The police use this ability during their interrogations.

Isleen Walker and her grandmother had been held captive and tortured for eight years. The only thing that kept her alive was her frail grandmother’s promise that her savior would come and save them. It was too late. The last stabbing in her side would be the end of her, if not Queen would finish it in the morning. Grandma lied, he wasn’t going to rescue her.
