Jarod is a Pretender—a genius whose exceptionally high I.Q. allows him to master virtually any profession. Since escaping from the Centre, the secret research facility where he was brought up after being taken from his parents, Jarod has managed to stay one step ahead of his ex-captors, Miss Parker and Sydney. Although still reeling from the death of his brother, Jarod also continues to make sure that justice is done by helping innocent victims wronged by society. But the search to bring Jarod back to the Centre is suddenly stepped up with the hiring of Brigitte and the mysterious Mr. Lyle. And it’s soon clear that the two new Centre operatives are just as determined to bring about the downfall of Miss Parker and Sydney as they are to find the Centre’s most prized specimen.
