The latest novel by Chicago author Marcus Sakey is a great read and totally unlike his past work such as "Good People" and "Amateurs". The story is set in the present but reads like a futuristic science fiction book, it is about the rise of children who are born gifted, called the abnorms. The rate has risen and the government sets up an agency called DAR,Department of Analysis and Response, told through the eyes of agent Cooper who is himself is gifted, the gifts are specific and not of the super power variety like X-Men.
Agent Cooper attitude about the gifted changes when he goes undercover to catch the dangerous abnorm John Smith who the DAR has named the most dangerous terrorist in the country, it's a fast, thrilling story and as I said a complete departure from his other works.
