A team of psychologists has gathered in a small college town to conduct a revolutionary experiment: To find five "savants" with extreme and diverse aptitudes, in order to create a sixth composite intelligence using new cybernetic technology. The first experiments show promise, but a terrifying secret from the past will transform the project in ways the researchers never anticipated--and infect the newborn intelligence with a catastrophic thirst for vengeance.

There is no mention of the Midwest in Gass’s Willie Masters’ Lonesome Wife, but the location is recognizably that of Gass’s earlier story: the heart of the heart of the country, the lonely heart of a person looking for love, a lonely mind reaching out for us, then shrinking back, complaining of i...
