Rachel Howard is a brilliant neuroscientist trying to make this capability a reality. But when she crosses paths with Kevin Quinn, a Secret Service agent desperately trying to kill the president, she finds herself at the epicenter of an insidious plot. A plot centered on the ultimate technological game changer. An utterly disruptive scientific breakthrough with the greatest power to transform civilization the world has ever seen. Along with breakneck action and unexpected twists, GAME CHANGER explores the fascinating inner world of our minds, and takes a stunningly unique look at how science might someday be used to make profound alterations to the human psyche -- for better or worse.
