When Jay Cross heals a paralyzed man just by touching his hand, and is able to do it again and again for the sick and the frail, his quiet, peaceful world is burdened with uncertainty. If he could cure the love of his life, perhaps he could embrace his newfound abilities, but it won't work, no matter how hard he tries.

Where did this power come from? Why were both men chosen?
And who is the mysterious stranger lurking in the shadows, waiting for his chance to destroy them both?
