“In a world where nothing is, as it seems, it’s impossible to know if even your own
thoughts are real. It’s not your computer you need to worry about being hacked, it’s your mind.”

Do you ever find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time? If you do, make sure to choose your next move carefully, because you never know who might be watching you…

Jordan Callahan is a regular guy, with an irregular problem. He’s always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Every moment in a crowd coils up with anticipation that someone around him may die. It could be a tragic accident, or random act of violence, but there is a good chance death is coming.

Walking the remarkably stable line between sanity and straightjacket, Jordan marches on as normally as possible. But normal flies out the window when an intriguing woman with an incredible story crashes into his world.

Kayci Dewitt is running for her life, from the same clandestine government group for which she works and there’s no place to hide. If there is any hope to survive this mind war, she’s going to have to unlock the ability that Jordan has been suppressing all his life. But it may be too little too late, for both of them.
I had a hard time with this one.  It took me forever (about half the book) to figure out what was going on and who was on which side.  Even once I got there, I didn't completely understand everyone's motives, reasons, and goals.  Kayci's former team mates were a complete mystery and I wish I'd had more understanding of them.  I just felt lost through most of the book - even the cat part didn't do much, and I love when cats are in books.  This one just served to make me wonder what the heck the characters were thinking even more.

I really enjoyed the paranormal element of the story.  The idea that the brain broadcasts frequencies, much like sound or radio waves, was a lot of fun to learn about.  The story goes fairly in depth on how this works and it seems to be very well developed.  If only I had gotten into the rest of the plot more, this would have been great.
