Born to Darkness
This book is a departure from Brockmann's popular Troubleshooters series about Navy Seals. It takes place in Boston, sometime into the future, when our country is still gripped by the second Great Depression and the divide between the haves and have-nots is greater than today. People even have to pay the police to file reports and investigate crimes.
The heroes are a team of super-people from the Obermeyer Institute somewhere outside of Boston. Called "Greater-Thans," the team members all have different enhanced abilities and are trained to control their powers and use their talents for good. At this future time in our society, evil has definitely gotten the upper hand! The book jacket talks about Brockmann's "talent for sexy, action-packed storytelling" and this story definitely fits the bill.
