Dark Matter - Brett Adams

Dark Matter is $2.99 for the kindle. It was free when I downloaded the book. You have to keep your eyes open. Super powers come in many different forms.

Rasputin Lowdermilk is ready to commit suicide. He's on the way to kill himself when he's hit by a car. When Rasputin, or Monk as his friends call him, comes out of his coma he discovers his mind has changed in ways he can't explain. Monk can remember everything he's ever seen or heard, and his mind keeps changing.

Gottfried Schürmann was a Nazi in WWII. When he wakes up in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, in the present day, Gottfried, or Cain as he calls himself, finds he's managed to survive decades of hibernation, and gained new powers that few humans have ever mastered. Cain intends to master them.

What these two men have in common is hard to follow at first, but the answers are woven into this tale. This book starts out slow, but builds to a very satisfying ending. Highly recommended.
