His genesis was inevitable. His intelligence is beyond our comprehension. His agenda is unknown. The Gemini Man is among us. At the end of a century of exponential growth, horrifying destruction, and accelerated evolution, only the fittest will survive his arrival. His time is now. One part Robert Ludlum with two parts Thomas Harris and brilliantly wrapped in a Darwinian high concept,The Gemini Manis a dazzling debut thriller from an extremely gifted and daring young writer. With a power-packed narrative drive and an absolutely engrossing cast of characters, it is destined to become one of the most talked-about books of the year. U.S. Brigadier General Alexander Beck found Brian Newman on the brink of court-martial. Knowing what a weapon this man could be, Beck trained him to live by his instincts and directed his development as a top dual-purpose covert operative. Code-named Gemini, Newman offered up his innocence and Beck dropped him into the most heated political battle in history. But after delivering a debilitating blow to the Soviet Union that sealed a Cold War victory for the grand old flag, Beck left him for dead. But the Gemini Man survived. The most lethal human fallout from the most catastrophic of centuries has been waiting to return home. Six years of contemplation in solitary confinement in a frozen Russian gulag taught him well. And at long last, Beck negotiates to bring his discovery in from the cold. Sent to an isolated psychiatric research facility for "de-briefing," Newman must play cat and mouse with a brilliant female psychiatrist long enough to enact his hidden agenda. But does the Gemini Man know who he really is? If he does, he must die. And if he doesn't, he'll have to die anyway. For if Brian Newman is set free, our days are numbered. And his time is now.
