Steve Punt turns private investigator, examining little mysteries that perplex, amuse and beguile.

Steve turns the spotlight on mind control. Thanks to works of fiction, the idea that government agencies have the ability to brianwash people to commit dastardly acts has firmly lodged itself in the public imagination.

Punt is assigned to sort fact from fiction, entering a murky work of government intelligence, military secrecy and wild speculation. From hypnosis to narcotics and now microwave technology, Punt calls in expert witnesses to ascertain whether it really is possible to get people to act against their free will. Can our wily PI track down the real Manchurian Candidate?
