Deciding he has finally had enough abuse from his drunken father and is now determined to get away--any way he can--Davy discovers that he has the ability to teleport anywhere he wants. So he "jumps" to New York City. But next he finds himself desperately short on cash, so he "jumps" into a bank vault. While living the high life in the Big City and testing the limits of his power, Davey makes another startling discovery--the mother whom he thought had abandoned him.

But a new tragedy and other events plunge Davy into a dangerous and mysterious world of terrorists and government espionage. This time there may be no safe place for "the Jumper."
