"Sometimes I wish they could lie to me." But no one can lie to David Morgan. No one can hide from him even the intimate or most treacherous secret. Not his unsuspecting wife, to whom he is the "perfect" husband, nor his university colleagues, to whom he is self-effacing but capable professor. For, like Superman to his Clark Kent guise, David Morgan conceals his awesome power. David Morgan can read minds.
Morgan knows what lies if the hearts of mankind, and his knowledge torments him. But not even he truly understands his "gift." Is he the most blessed--or most cursed--creature on earth? From his mother has come a muddled and incredible tale of his unearthly conception. Could he be a chosen one, a new messiah?
Only Randolph Schmidt, brilliant psychologist, dares imagine the full implication of Morgan's powers--and he seeks to harness them. To Schmidt, Morgan could be the nation's ultimate weapon--and a model for future genetic engineering. He is determined to use Morgan to determine the course of history.
Forced to go public with his strange abilities, Morgan comes to see that his powers exceeds whatever he himself knew: not only can he read minds, he can also control them. And as the word plunges ever deeper into crisis, ever closer to the nuclear holocaust that would end human life, David decides he must act ... but in such a way as to challenge mankind to save itself.

About the Author
Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl – a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the “Chimpion” Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.
At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a “master of suspense” by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.
C. Terry Cline’s wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.
