    Before he slid into the MRI machine, Jake Bronson was just an ordinary guy with terminal cancer. But when an earthquake hits during the procedure, Jake staggers from the wreckage a profoundly changed man, now endowed with uncanny mental abilities. An ocean away, Luciano Battista wants a piece of Jake's talent. The terrorist leader has been conducting cerebral-implant experiments in a sinister quest to create a breed of super jihadist agents...and Jake's altered brain may be the key to his success.

But that doesn't mean the past hasn't been looking for him, or that it will let him live when it finally catches up. Jake's placid life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him, and he has no idea why he's in their crosshairs. He's saved only when an American scientist intervenes, wielding technology that reactivates Jake's dormant memories and deadly skills.
