Harmony House is more than a “special place for special people.” It’s a think tank where high-functioning autistic savants harness their unique abilities for the benefit of society. Resident Eddie Parks’s contribution is nothing less than extraordinary: an “echo box” that can re-create never-recorded sounds using acoustic archeology.
All Eddie wants is to hear his late mother’s voice. But what he’s created is inadvertently posing a threat to national security.
To Harmony House’s shadowy government backers and radical extremists, the echo box is the ultimate intelligence asset - an end to the very concept of secrecy. Now for Eddie and the compassionate Dr. Skylar Drummond, the true nature of the institution is becoming chillingly clear.
As ruthless competing enemies close in on Eddie and his miraculous machine, Skylar risks all to take him on the run. Because once that prize is won, Eddie Parks will no longer be considered a “special person” but a dangerous redundancy. An inconvenient echo that must be silenced.

First be warned, this is book one in a two book series. I didn't realize this when I purchased the book but I would have bought it anyway. The ending is rather abrupt and leaves some questions unanswered. There is resolution to the main plot.
The publisher's summary gives a very good description so I won't review the plot. This is very well written however I do think the black op agencies were a little overwhelming. There were a few and that got a little jumbled. Some were a little more barbaric and the bodies stack up.
What I did like was the portrayal of Eddie and his autistic tendencies. My favorite situation is when he buys a pretzel from a vender for $2, it's the first time in his life he has ever bought and paid for anything. He's 27 years old.
Christopher Lane, as expected does a fantastic job narrating.
