Here Stuyvesant uncovers hidden secrets, a horrifying conspiracy, and wonders if he can trust his touchstone, Grey, to reveal the most dangerous player of all ...

With a glance, Bennett Grey can read people's true feelings. With a touch, uncover their darkest secrets. His unwanted talent has driven him to the edge of madness and to a remote cottage in Cornwall where he lives in virtual seclusion -- until FBI agent Harris Styvesant entices him to help him diffuse a terrorist plot that could rip the world apart.
