Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

Shane soon discovers that there are certain individuals who possess the unique ability to access untapped regions of the brain with extraordinary results - including telekinesis, super strength, and reversal of the aging process. Known as Greater-Thans, this rare breed is recruited by OI, where they are rigorously trained using ancient techniques to cultivate their powers and wield them responsibly.

But in the depths of America's second Great Depression, where the divide between the haves and the have-nots has grown even wider, those who are rich - and reckless - enough have a quick, seductive alternative: Destiny, a highly addictive designer drug that can make anyone a Greater-Than, with the power of eternal youth. The sinister cartel known as The Organization has begun mass-producing Destiny, and the demand is epidemic. But few realize the drug's true danger, and fewer still know the dirty secret of Destiny's crucial ingredient.

Michelle Mac Mackenzie knows the ugly truth. And as one of the Obermeyer Institute's crack team of operatives, she's determined to end the scourge of Destiny.

Although Shane isn't a Greater-Than like Mac, as an ex-SEAL, he's got talents of his own.

But Mac's got powerful reasons to keep her distance from him - and reasons that are just as strong to want him close. She's used to ri... Download and start listening now!

    " This was a different book from her normal I am not quite sure I liked it. It was to long and sent in the future. "

    " I love Suzanne Brockmann and Born to Darkness is a book with many of the features in books I love. Unfortunately it did not come together for me. I wanted to love it and expected to, but did not. I did not like the characters so couldn't jump into the story or world. I don't think I'll continue this series, but I'm not sure. I really love Suzanne Brockmann so who knows? "
