From bestselling comic-book franchise writer Charles Soule
comes a clever and witty first novel of a twentysomething
New Yorker who wakes up one morning with the power to
predict the futureâ€”perfect for fans of Joe Hill and Brad
Meltzer, or books like This Book Is Full of Spiders
and Welcome to Night Vale.
Knowledge is power. So when an unassuming Manhattan bassist
named Will Dando awakens from a dream one morning with 108
predictions about the future in his head, he rapidly finds
himself the most powerful man in the world. Protecting his
anonymity by calling himself the Oracle, he sets up a
heavily guarded Web site with the help of his friend Hamza
to selectively announce his revelations. In no time, global
corporations are offering him millions for exclusive access,
eager to profit from his prophecies.
He's also making a lot of high-powered enemies, from the
President of the United States and a nationally prominent
televangelist to a warlord with a nuclear missile and an
assassin grandmother. Legions of cyber spies are unleashed
to hack the Siteâ€”as it's come to be calledâ€”and the best
manhunters money can buy are deployed not only to unmask the
Oracle but to take him out of the game entirely. With only a
handful of people he can trustâ€”including a beautiful
journalistâ€”it's all Will can do to simply survive, elude
exposure, and protect those he loves long enough to use his
knowledge to save the world.
Delivering fast-paced adventure on a global scale as well as
sharp-witted satire on our concepts of power and faith,
Marvel writer Charles Soule's audacious debut novel takes
readers on a rollicking ride where it's impossible to
predict what will happen next.
