About this Item

288 p. This is a Tom Foherty Associates book. Computer programmer Rob Lewis awakes one morning to find that he has developed psychic powers: he can both read and influence the minds of those around him. Thinking that he is in control of these newfound powers, Rob uses them to make life easier for himself and his family. He even gets his wife a promotion. But when his young twins start acting like adults, Rob realizes that he is influencing them, and other events, without trying. Horrified by this revelation, Rob decides to become a street person and cut himself off from society. Just when Rob thinks he has solved his dilemma, he gets a mind-probe telling him to travel to Outer Mongolia to learn the nature of his powers. Very good. No dust jacket as issued. Signed by author.

About this title


When a software developer suddenly discovers that he has the ability to read the hearts and minds of everyone around him, he expects to enjoy his godlike power, but when his power reveals its darker side, he is driven from his family to the depths of despair and degradation. Reprint.


Rob Lewis, an ordinary computer programmer with a wife and two kids, becomes something extraordinary one day after he wakes up and discovers he can read--and control--other people's minds. It's an ability most people dream of having, but for Rob it quickly destroys his life. There is a death, injuries, the threat of warping the lives of his children. Rob flees to New York where, homeless and destitute, he contacts Edwin Barbaross of the National Institutes of Health. Together they travel to Uzbekistan, where Rob will face both the source of his powers and his own inner demons.
