It’s the second-to-last day of archaeological field school – the students are working on a site of prehistoric graves on Dewees, a barrier island north of Charleston, South Carolina, when a much more recent burial is uncovered. The skeleton is articulated, the bone fresh and the vertebrae still connected by soft-tissue – it’s a case forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan has to take. But her investigations soon have her in too deep, her entire view of humanity challenged, and the further she probes, the more she seems to be putting herself in danger₵60.00Quick View

Newsday called John Darnton’s Neanderthal “hair-raisingly believable” and The New York Times called The Experiment “complex and original [and] wholly engaging . . . a world where fiction pales before the unbelievable truth.” Now the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author has done it again, in a story almost beyond imagining.
New York City: A thirteen-year-old boy named Tyler lies in a hospital, his brain damaged in a tragic accident. By his bedside, his father stands helplessly, as two very different scientists take charge of the boy’s fate. One is a neurosurgeon, whose unorthodox experiments use computers to control a patient’s physical responses during surgery. The other is a researcher with experiments of his own, experiments so secret he can breathe them to nobody: his attempts to find the spark of human consciousness…and capture it forever.
Together, they will produce a result beyond anything they could have conceived, sending Tyler far beyond the frontiers of medical science into an astonishing netherworld–a place no living person has gone before and from which one desperate person will try to bring him back….
A spellbinding novel of science, technology, and the very stuff that makes us human, Mind Catcher is an unforgettable journey into the possibilities of the mind of man…and his soul.₵55.00₵55.00Quick View
