After barely rescuing Lucas from a viral download attack, the notorious Baud hunter Cowboy Dan whisks him away to help him heal from a growing Baud infection. Caught up in a daring adventure, Lucas discovers that he has extraordinary mental powers far in advance of any other child of Doctor Zoo seen before¿including Cowboy Dan's own step-daughter.
