    In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible. They’re called "brilliants," and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in.

    The last thing FBI agent Will Brody remembers is the explosion - a thousand shards of glass surfing a lethal shock wave. He wakes without a scratch. The building is in ruins. His team is gone. Outside, Chicago is dark. Cars lie abandoned. No planes cross the sky. He's relieved to spot other people - until he sees they're carrying machetes.

    The brilliants changed everything.

    Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we'd only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person's most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional...and the rest of us.

    Seit 1980 kommt ein Prozent aller Kinder mit Gaben auf die Welt, von denen wir bis dahin nur träumen konnten. Sie können die intimsten Geheimnisse eines Menschen wahrnehmen, Börsenbewegungen voraussagen oder sich fast unmerklich fortbewegen. Seit dreißig Jahren wächst die Kluft zwischen diesen außergewöhnlichen Menschen... und uns anderen. Nun hat ein von Genialen organisiertes Terrornetz drei Städte lahmgelegt. Die Regale der Supermärkte sind leer, Notrufe werden nicht beantwortet, Menschen werden bei lebendigem Leib verbrannt.

    The only sign of life for miles is an empty BMW. Inside the expensive car he finds clothes that fit perfectly, shoes for his tattered feet, a Rolex, and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California. None of it is familiar. How did he get here? Who is he? Who was he? While he searches for answers, the world searches for him - beginning with the cops that kick in the door of his dingy motel with guns drawn. Lost and alone, the man who might be Daniel Hayes flees into the night. All he remembers is a woman’s face, so he sets off for the only place he might find her.

    In Wyoming kann ein kleines Mädchen in der Art, wie jemand seine Arme verschränkt, seine dunkelsten Geheimnisse lesen.

Seit 1980 kommt ein Prozent aller Neugeborenen "abnorm" zur Welt - und seitdem ist alles anders. Einer von ihnen ist der Agent Nick Cooper.

    The $400,000 would take care of the mortgage payments that are starting to back up on Tom and Anna Reed. It would cover the credit-card debt they can't get out from under. It would help them find a way to have the child they desperately want but can't seem to conceive. It is more money than either of them has ever seen in one place. But they have no idea what it's doing in their house.

    Four friends from the old neighborhood have dreams of a better life. And they've worked hard for it. A bartender. A failing stock broker. A hotel doorman. A travel agent. In a world where CEOs steal millions while their employees worry about their next paycheck, where the few dollars any of them have saved are held hostage to the whims of billionaires a world away, the honest approach got these four nowhere. Now they've gone too far with a plan to change their situation and their world is falling apart.
