When she was a child, Erin Palmer was too paralyzed by fear to prevent her family from being mercilessly slaughtered by a psychopath. Now she has dedicated her entire life to defending herself against psychopaths and curing psychopathy. At the Arizona State Prison Complex in Tucson, Erin, a graduate student, is working on her thesis. During her experimentations on inmates, she discovers a cure.

Unfortunately, several highly intelligent, devious men, Hugh Raborn of Asclepius Pharmaceuticals and Steve Fuller of Advanced Science Applications, want the cure. Neither gentleman is who they pretend to be.

Kyle Hansen, a computer geek, joins Erin in a cloak and dagger game as she tries to elude capture and prevent her cure from being used to destroy mankind.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Erin Palmer had a devastating encounter with a psychopath as a child. Now a grad student and scientist, she's devoting her life to studying these monsters. When her research catches the attention of Hugh Raborn, a brilliant neuroscientist who claims to have isolated the genes responsible for psychopathic behavior, Erin realizes it may be possible to reverse the condition, restoring souls to psychopaths. But to do so, she'll not only have to operate outside the law, but violate her most cherished ethical principles.

As Erin becomes further involved with Raborn, she begins to suspect that he harbors dark secrets. Is he working for the good of society? Or is he intent on bringing humanity to its knees?

Hunted by powerful, shadowy forces, Erin teams up with another mysterious man, Kyle Hansen, to uncover the truth. The pair soon find themselves pawns in a global conspiracy--one capable of destroying everything Erin holds dear. And forever altering the course of human history.
