Who is Steven Giamotti? A teenage psychopath stalking a swank Eastern prep school? A self-proclaimed messiah with the power to raise the dead, racing toward a desolate Pacific island aboard a hijacked submarine? A suave and charming Manhattan financier who may or may not be secretly building the world's ultimate weapon? A traveler from another universe on a mission to expand human consciousness--or destroy it? Or is he just a character in a book, a figment of someone else's imagination! ...or your own?
