Its all about understanding one another. Or rather, the egregious lack thereof. In a not-too-distant future, a very small percentage of people are born with the ability to hear all the thoughts and memories of the people around themin fact, they are unable shut out the unwanted thoughts of others. Feared by the majority, these Psi-kicks are pressed into government service and segregated so they might be contained, but the Norms who proscribe these rules unwittingly create something else: where everyone can hear the thoughts and feelings of the people around them, there is no room for malice, no need of hate, and even apathy is abandoned. In this novel, PETER ELLIOT is one such Psi-kick. When his special skills as a detective are called in to investigate a string of kidnappings were given the chance to see his world and acquaintances filtered through his sardonic perceptions. As he digs through the case, hes lead toward a unbelievable conclusion: that one of his own, a Ps
i-kick, has decided that most of humanity is too sick to be allowed to run the world, and has devised a way to perpetuate his utopia: the genocide of all Norms.
You don't need to build a world in your hook. Start with Peter Elliot. What's his problem? Who's making his life a living hell? What does he have to do to solve the problem.
And if he's a Psiborg...why is he out in the world? I thought they were segregated.
