Summary

In the booming metropolis of New Tokyo, a high-ranking business executive is tasked with transporting valuable company data in the form of an information package stored inside his mind. Fearing an attack from one of the Federation’s oldest criminal organizations, the corporation entrusts his safety to the Ayers-Ross Thoughtprotection Agency. 
 
For Sheldon Ayers, a veteran telepath and Mindguard, the mission starts like any other. When his team is attacked in the high-speed transportation network below the city, Sheldon must once again use his legendary skills and experience to protect his client’s mind. But this time, he finds himself facing an enemy who seems to be able to predict his every move. 
 
Fighting to adapt to an unprecedented situation, Sheldon suspects that behind the attack lies an unlikely adversary – someone even he couldn’t have prepared for, someone with ties to Sheldon’s past. 
The Positive Deviant is a standalone prequel to The Mind Malignancy, a series of dark science fiction thrillers.
