Overview

Clay is the prototype, the first of many, programmed with a genetic code that turns him from an ordinary man into a murderous monster. Adrienne, a young psychologist, found him in a Tempe hospital, his hands splintered from the brutal beating he had inflicted on three men who had tried to mug him. To her, he was the most unusual John Doe, but she got his name. Then, she got his past. And then, she discovered the bizarre genetic abnormality in his blood, the abnormality that made him one of the most dangerous creatures on earth.

Desperate to escape the evil in his genes, Clay turns to Adrienne and trusts her with his unfortunate history, a sad world of misfits and prodigies. But as he struggles for peace, both of them move further into the darkness, closer to the man who knows Clay's secret and knows the others in the world just like him.

Now, traveling across country, Clay and Adrienne grapple with their longings and their hope, guided only by the map written in Clay's blood. And Adrienne may be Clay's savior or his next victim.

Hodge has written a taut, suspenseful tale of psychological horror that stretches the boundaries of the contemporary horror novel.

Adrienne, a psychologist, discovered Clay in a hospital, his hands recovering from the brutal beating he had given three muggers. When she finds a bizarre genetic abnormality in his blood, Clay shares with her his entire story. He is a man programmed to kill, struggling to outrun the evil in his blood, and tormented by the knowledge that he's not the only one of his kind. Original.
