Brainchild - John Saul

La Paloma... once home to a proud Spanish heritage... now a thriving modern community high in the California hills... where a boy named Alex is about to become the instrument of a terrible, undying vengeance...

Alex needs a miracle.

Alex Lonsdale was one of the most popular kids in La Paloma. Until the horrifying car accident. Until a brilliant doctor's medical miracle brought him back from the brink of death.

Now Alex has come back.

He seems the same. But in his eyes there is a terrible blankness. In his heart there is a coldness. And if his parents, his friend, his girlfriend could see inside his brain, if they could see his dreams, they would be terrified.

Now the people must die.

One hundred years a go in La paloma a terrible deed was done; a cry for vengeance pierced the night. In dark and secret places in La Paloma that evil lives still, that vengeance waits. Waits for Alex Lonsdale.

Waits for the... Brainchild.
