Telepath, Joshua Lazarus, raised in the NSA run Home for Gifted Children, is an agent for the NSA, using his special "scoper" skills for government missions. Prepared to lose his mind and die as a result of the Widmann's Disease that causes his special talent, Joshua falls in love with a woman with similar powers, who's not an agent of the NSA nor a victim of any disease, and discovers that everything that he's believed about his life is a lie.
