Tom's life is not what it once was. His marriage to the beautiful Nora is on the rocks and he now sees his two young children only on her say-so. His best friend Neil has moved to California to teach neurology. He has one success - a book on human psychology. Tom wiles away the time trying to teach bored grad students. But that all changes when Neil comes back into his life. For it seems that Tom's best friend was working for the National Security Agency, cracking the minds of suspected terrorists. Now it is Neil himself who has cracked and gone AWOL - what's more, he has left behind evidence that he has been employing his unique skills on civilians - obsessed with the idea that he can control the human brain.
 
Thus begins a terrifying sequence of events as Neil starts to kidnap and mutilate people with a connection to Tom. He damages their brains and then releases them - often leaving them mad. But only when he gets near his ultimate target does he reveal the full horror of his plan . . .

Praise for Neuropath

“Neuropath by R. Scott Bakker crackles with energy, a thriller that presents a frighteningly plausible look into the future of neuroscience. I found this an outstanding read, as fascinating as it is original, with real science, real characters, and a relentless plot. On top of that, it raises some big, big questions about free will and the nature of the human mind.”--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Blasphemy

"At first I couldn't believe what I was reading, and that was scary, and then I could, and that was really scary. Neuropath describes a future that is creeping into reality by stealth, and it is going to challenge our most basic ideas of who and what we are. Add to that a ferociously exciting reading experience and a startlingly well informed plot, and you have a book that works like arson for the mind. Terrifying and brilliant."--Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of 2012: The War For Souls
