The Travelerby John Twelve Hawks
Synopses & Reviews
In London, Maya, a young woman trained to fight by her powerful father, uses the latest technology to elude detection when walking past the thousands of surveillance cameras that watch the city. In New York, a secret shadow organization uses a victim's own GPS to hunt him down and kill him. In Los Angeles, Gabriel, a motorcycle messenger with a haunted past, takes pains to live "off the grid" — free of credit cards and government IDs. Welcome to the world of The Traveler — a world frighteningly like our own.
In this compelling novel, Maya fights to save Gabriel, the only man who can stand against the forces that attempt to monitor and control society. From the back streets of Prague to the skyscrapers of Manhattan, The Traveler portrays an epic struggle between tyranny and freedom. Not since 1984 have readers witnessed a Big Brother so terrifying in its implications and in a story that so closely reflects our lives.
"Gripping....Fresh and fascinating....Impossible to put down." Daily News
"A fearless, brilliant action heroine (think Uma Thurman in Kill Bill); a secret history of the world; a tale of brother against brother...and nonstop action as the forces of good and evil battle it out....Readers won't regret taking this wild ride." The Times-Picayune
"This novel's a stunner....You won't want to put the book down." People
"The novel's style is page-turningly swift, and its theories are delivered without pseudoscientific harrumphing. Yet for all of the futuristic details that help shape the story, what holds it together is good old-fashioned utopian sunshine." New York Times
Two young men have been shaped since childhood by stories that their father was a Traveler — one of an elite group of prophets able to attain pure enlightenment. Because they may have inherited their father's gifts, they are being hunted by protectors and assassins alike.
