Murder Mystery Novel
Hale is a young journalist living in Long Beach, California. He lives a secluded life, relying on his laptop and a single extroverted friend to be his link to the outside world. Though there are many contributing factors, the primary reason for Hale’s withdrawal from society is his ability to read emotions and memories off objects and people.
Hale's quiet life ends when Cass, an intriguing woman with a strong analytical eye, pulls Hale from his solitude. Her ability to organize and interpret data compliments Hale's ability to gather random information.
After encountering a budding cult of 'Touched' individuals like Hale, a murder mystery, and a shadowy organization with unclear motives, Hale and Cass realize their unique abilities can pick through the imbroglio of mysteries if they work together.
