Book Synopsis
Set in the year 2054, the story is told from the perspective of journalist Jacob Esau as he conducts a series of invited interviews with the most infamous prisoner in America, Orrin Wright, the man who murdered 1 billion people. Esau has undertaken this project with anxiety: His own reporting precipitated Wright’s conviction. He expects to find a monster worthy of his genocidal reputation. Instead, Jacob meets on Fordham Penitentiary’s death row a brilliant but tired, remorseful old man who wants history to know his side of the story.

The book is a suspenseful mix of Wright’s memories, with facts, figures and testimonies from the 2030s to the 2050s, and a present account of the prisoner’s life. The reader learns how Wright, along with fellow MIT students Jeff Olznak and Mike Mendel, invented the world’s first teleporter. Esau recounts the spectacular rise of the teleporter to become the world’s premier form of transportation, and then retells the events that lead to Wright’s downfall – and the tragic punishment he endures.
