Reading people's minds sounds awesome in theory, but what if technology could make it possible? Would we truly want to know the thoughts of others? Furthermore, would we really want them to know ours? Such a breakthrough would completely change the way humans interact. Whether it's for the good is what a group of genius, but dysfunctional, grad students find out in Khalil Sullins' LISTENING. Uptight David is so obsessed with his studies that he's strained his personal relationships. Spacey Ryan could be just as brilliant as David if he wasn't so consumed with chasing women. One of those women is Jordan, who may be smarter than both of them combined. Together – and independent from the guidance of their teachers - they create a mindreading device that could bring them the money and prestige they've been seeking. But what they haven't invented is a tool for detecting deception, which could ultimately destroy them. Full of twists and turns, LISTENING is a smart, action-packed sci-fi thriller that will entertain and also stimulate your mind. – E.F.
