The Pretender: Rebirth
The Pretender - Rebirth features a brilliant human chameleon named Jarod, who after escaping from his captors at the notorious Centre, plunges headlong into his newfound freedom, embracing his NYC environs, Harlem to be exact, as his new home. While also discovering the joys and intricacies of everyday life with the pure wonderment of the man/child he is, Jarod uses his dazzling mind and unequaled abilities to literally become anyone he wants to be - a human chameleon of the first order - as well as his unique mind over muscle vigilante-like skills to bring down the powerful and corrupt as they exploit the little guy - those who can't defend themselves.
But while Jarod is capable of becoming anyone he wants to be, the heart-rending truth is - he doesn't know who he himself is. Stolen as a child and raised and exploited for his genius by The Centre, the now free Jarod vows to discover the truth about who he is, where he came from and the location of his real family.
All the while he must stay a step ahead of his relentless pursuers from The Centre, who want him recaptured at any cost - alive - preferably.
In The Pretender - Rebirth Jarod discovers that survival in the outside world will require all of his extraordinary skills and brilliance. It will require tenacity and guile, risk and fearlessness, keen human instinct and yes, even a little help from his new friends. Rebirth is at once an enthralling tale of one man's exploration of life around him, intricate suspenseful mystery and intense edge-of-your-seat thrill ride - a fast-paced novel that captures and reignites the cult hit TV series for both the loyal generation of Pretender fans who've long awaited Jarod's return and for a new generation of readers about to discover what many before them already have...
