A group of scientists and research subjects experiment with using brain waves to cause physical outcomes on objects, computer programs, etc. Their research is promising enough that they set up a company to further the research and exploit its practical applications. Some of the subjects develop abilities that are way beyond the original scope of the experiments. Naturally their work attracts the attention of a shadowy governmental operation that hires them to train its operatives. Of course this doesn't end well. The build up in this book is somewhat slow but the last 20% or so has a lot of action, and then it just ends.

As the author's first book, it's not the most artfully drafted book I've ever read, but it was entertaining. This sci fi thriller is the first of a trilogy and so far I'm interested enough to want to continue with the second book. Unfortunately, that's pretty much required, since nothing is resolved here. This book is just a set up for the next book and ends with a cliff hanger. Enter shadowy organization number 2. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062419528, Paperback)

“Patrick Hemstreet’s debut, THE GOD WAVE, is a bombshell of a thriller full of everything I love: complicated characters, dynamic plotting, all set against a backdrop of a fantastic scientific premise.  Here is a novel that demands to be read in one sitting, while leaving a lasting impact afterward.  And with more of this world to come, I can’t wait to read what happens next.” —James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Bone Labyrinth

The God Wave is a mind-twisting ‘what if?’ story with some crazy cool science and true-to-life characters you can't help but root for. It feels like those vivid dreams where everything is normal except you can do this one thing other people can't. A fun and disturbingly believable foray into the paranormal. Don't mess with the Zetas!” —Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants

A team of neuroscientists uncover amazing new capabilities in the brain that may steer human evolution toward miraculous and deadly frontiers in this spectacular debut work of speculative science fiction—Limitless meets James Rollins—that combines spirituality and science in an inventive, mind-blowing fashion.

For decades, scientists have speculated about the untapped potential of the human brain. Now, neuroscientist Chuck Brenton has made an astonishing breakthrough. He has discovered the key—the crucial combination of practice and conditioning—to access the incredible power dormant in ninety percent of our brains. Applying his methods to test subjects, he has stimulated abilities that elevate brain function to seemingly “godlike” levels.

These extraordinary abilities can transform the world, replacing fear and suffering with tranquility and stability. But in an age of increasing militarization, corporate exploitation, and explosive technological discovery, a group of influential power brokers are determined to control Brenton’s new superbeings for their own manipulative ends—and their motives may be far from peaceful.
