This book is a continuation of Mind’s Eye. I read the first book while I was on vacation in Italy for a friend’s wedding, so thinking about it gives me the happy feels. In Mind’s Eye, we learn that a marine biologist named Nick Hall, along with 23 other people who were working with him on his ship were kidnapped at sea by a pretty crazy dude. The crazy dude experimented on all of them to try and perfect brain implants for mental internet surfing. Nick was the last one experimented on, and the only one who survived. His implants worked, and he somehow developed ESP in the process. He used his ESP on his kidnappers, and he escaped. The first book is basically about Nick getting away and convincing people he’s for real. He meets a woman along the way named Megan, and for some reason he can’t read her mind. She’s the only person he encounters that he can’t read. She joins his journey, and they eventually (of course) fall in love. He also meets the head inventor (Alex) of the company the crazy dude owns. They also become friends. Anyway, all of this is background for BrainWeb.
The book starts out with Nick and Megan in a secret black ops location trying to figure out how to get rid of Nick’s ESP, and/or what specifically caused it. They eventually thwart a terrorist attack at the Oscar’s with Nick’s help and a SEAL team. Unfortunately Nick and Megan get kidnapped so another bad dude can use Nick’s ESP to get dirt on politicians and become president. BrainWeb is all about the evils of politics and the internet. It’s an intriguing story. There are two main bad guys. Nick basically tells us how lots and lots of people are thinking disgusting and terrible things about each other all the time. It would probably suck to have ESP.
