Spider-Man meets Men in Black in this heart-stopping novel from James Patterson, author of the bestselling books Maximum Ride and When the Wind Blows. He was born with great power. The greatest superpower of all isn't to be part spider, part man, or to cast magic spells – the greatest power is the power to create. Daniel X has that power. And a Deadly Secret. Daniel's secret abilities – like being able to manipulate objects and animals with his mind or to re-create himself in any shape he chooses – have helped him survive. But Daniel doesn't have a normal life. He is the protector of Earth, the Alien Hunter, with a mission beyond anyone's imagining. Now the fate of the world rests on Daniel X. From the day that his parents were brutally murdered before his very eyes, Daniel has used his unique gifts to hunt down their assassin. Finally, with the help of The List, bequeathed to him in his parents' dying breath, he is closing in on the killer. From the Compact Disc edition.
