Newsday called John Darnton's Neanderthal "hair-raisingly believable" and The New York Times called The Experiment "complex and original [and] wholly engaging . . . a world where fiction pales before the unbelievable truth." Now the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author has done it again, in a story almost beyond imagining.

New York City: A thirteen-year-old boy named Tyler lies in a hospital, his brain damaged in a tragic accident. By his bedside, his father stands helplessly, as two very different scientists take charge of the boy's fate. One is a neurosurgeon, whose unorthodox experiments use computers to control a patient's physical responses during surgery. The other is a researcher with experiments of his own, experiments so secret he can breathe them to nobody: his attempts to find the spark of human consciousness...and capture it forever.

Together, they will produce a result beyond anything they could have conceived, sending Tyler far beyond the frontiers of medical science into an astonishing netherworld--a place no living person has gone before and from which one desperate person will try to bring him back....

A spellbinding novel of science, technology, and the very stuff that makes us human, Mind Catcher is an unforgettable journey into the possibilities of the mind of man...and his soul.

Baker & Taylor

Cool concept but I found the writing to be too heavy, making it more difficult to read than it should have been
