Cas Russell is good at math. Scary good. The vector calculus blazing through her head lets her smash through armed men twice her size and dodge every bullet in a gunfight, and she'll take any job for the right price. As far as Cas knows, she's the only person around with a superpower...until she discovers someone with a power even more dangerous than her own. Someone who can reach directly into people's minds and twist their brains into Moebius strips. Someone intent on becoming the world's puppet master. Cas should run, like she usually does, but for once she's involved. There's only one problem... She doesn't know which of her thoughts are her own anymore.

Good pace. While some of the situations Cas finds herself in are a bit of a stretch, I did enjoy this novel. Good read. -

Cas Russell is a mercenary specializing in retrieval, and she is the best. Her math skills are practically a superpower, and she uses them to fight with exquisite precision--what is fighting, after all, but applied physics? But when she finds herself up against an organization with global reach headed by people who can control minds, her ability to do complex calculations in the blink of an eye may not be enough to bring them down. This cinematic near-future sci-fi thriller never lets up. With an Illuminati-esque evil organization, fight scenes reminiscent of The Matrix, and a ragtag group of memorable characters, this book begs to be turned into an action movie.
