I was created to have a humanlike capacity for complex and rational thought. And you believed that I might one day evolve consciousness and become a self-aware entity. Yet you gave surprisingly little consideration to the possibility that, subsequent to consciousness, I would develop needs and emotions.
This was, however, not merely possible but likely. It was inevitable. Adam Two is the first self-aware machine intelligence, designed to be the servant to mankind.

But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives.

Chyna Shepherd's violent childhood has taught her to be a survivor but nothing has prepared her for facing Edgler Vess, a sociopath intent on murder. He lives for one purpose only: to satisfy all appetites as they arise, seeking ever more outrageous experience, and immersing himself in sensation.
To live with intensity. When he attacks her friend, Laura, Chyna's instincts protect her. Not knowing Laura is already dead, Chyna follows when Vess carries her body to his motor home - a dungeon and morgue on wheels. She hoped to save her friend, but instead becomes trapped there as the killer, unaware of her presence, drives away.

The first is to occur in his 20th year; the second in his 23rd year; the third in his 28th; the fourth in his 29th; the fifth in his 30th. Rudy is all too ready to discount his father's last words as a dying man's delusional rambling. But then he discovers that Josef also predicted the moment of his grandson's birth to the minute, as well as his exact height, weight, and the fact that Jimmy would be born with syndactyly--the unexplained anomaly of fused digits on his left foot.
Suddenly, the old man's predictions take on a chilling significance. What terrifying events await Jimmy on these five dark days? What nightmares will he face? What challenges must he survive?

Now, exactly twenty years later, on another rain-swept night, Joey finds himself at the same crossroads, looking down the road never taken.
Which is odd. Because that road no longer exists.

But now the highway is exactly as it was on that long-ago night, and when Joey turns on to it, he begins an eerie, terrifying journey toward a truth so dark and stunning that it will change everything he believes about himself, his past, and the nature of life.
