This is probably the worst book I've ever read. There are some incredibly stupid characterizations and bits of dialogue throughout. For example, the main character is a psychic who knows when people are telling the truth. He gets odd visual sensations when people don't tell the truth. So what is his profession? He runs an acting studio and directs plays. In other words, all day long he has to listen to people not telling the truth. Is it a co-incident that the author also runs an acting studio with the same name as the one in the book?
Regarding the ridiculous dialogue - here is an exchange between an acknowledged psychic and her NSA handler after watching the president deliver a speech.
Psychic - He has a strong aura of death surrounding him.
Agent - Now is not the time for chit-chat.
Throw in a constantly enraged head of the NSA and so many loose plot strings - I only finished the book so I could write this and tell others not to bother.
You're welcome.
