One gunshot, one death, one moment out of time that irrevocably links eight minds in disparate parts of the world, putting them in each other's lives, each other's secrets, and in terrible danger. Ordinary people suddenly reborn as "Sensates".
They come in contact with one another as though they are in the same place, and find that they share each other's emotions, language and other skills.
Evil people who are aware of their gifts begin to track them down, and they are in terrible danger. A man who understands them contacts each of them and helps them develop their gifts and stay ahead of those that hunt them.
