Aria Rioverde, a professor of ethnomusicology, is rapidly going blind. She is renowned for her performances of Afro-Caribbean music and dance from her home island of Curacao; but how will she continue the career she loves when she can no longer see?
 
Nat Colt is dying. His final goals are to find a mother figure to take care of his 9-year-old daughter, Jazz, and to complete the artificial vision system that he and his late wife devoted their science careers to developing.
 
When Aria arrives at Nat's lab to protest his use of bonobos in experiments with artificial vision, Nat pins his hopes on using her in his first human trial. At first Aria refuses, but desperate to regain her failing eyesight, she submits to being the subject in a procedure that surgically implants tiny computers in her retinas and brain. The system restores Aria's eyesight, but unexpectedly her vision continues evolving--becoming superhuman. 
 
When her remote viewing inadvertently spies a black ops intelligence operation hidden deep inside a mountain, the dancer and Nat and his daughter find themselves fleeing a team of killers who will stop at nothing to get at the implants inside Aria's head.

From the Author:

The Redemptive Power of Love 
I'm a true romantic. Each of my novels expresses the same moral theme: Love (not power) is the only force that can render us fearless. 

This also is a central theme of so-called "Romanticism"--the artistic, literary, and intellectual movement that began in Europe at the end of the 18th century and peaked in the 19th century, and included the works of Whitman, Emerson, and Thoreau. Another recurring idea that drove the Romantic Era is the revelatory wisdom and beauty of nature. My novels always explore the wonder and wildness, bliss and terror of the human body within the natural world ("Eros" writ with a capital "E").

About the Author:

Mark Canter was raised in Kentucky hill country in a metropolis of 400 tobacco and hog farmers, where he belonged to the only Jewish family in the universe. In his dharma-bum youth, he hitchhiked and jumped trains across the Western States and Canada and went through jobs from pizza chef to surgical orderly, massage therapist to rock-show stagehand. After getting a journalism degree, he wrote for a few Florida newspapers before becoming senior editor of Men's Health magazine. His short stories have been published nationally and his debut novel, Ember From the Sun, was translated into nine foreign languages; his second novel, Down to Heaven, into four.
