Suspense fiction. From the bestselling and award-winning author of Gold of Kings and The Black Madonna --a thrilling novel about a psychologist whose psychic gifts are unleashed when she has to rely on an ancient manuscript to interpret the dreams of a mysterious client. For Dr. Elena Burroughs, life is divided into before and after: before and after the death of her husband, Jason. The ache has dulled but is always with her. Even her success as a psychologist is dimmed by an unspoken if only. One day a new patient named Sandra recounts a frightening series of recurrent nightmares. Using an ancient book filled with prayers that invoke the powers of the Holy Spirit, Elena reviews the dreams. Elena's interpretations confirm Sandra's fears--her husband, the Ambassador to the Court of St. James, will confront a powerful, global network of dangerous, and possibly deadly, forces. In the coming days, Elena experiences a succession of insights and warnings that portend danger for Sandra, her husband, and even the global economy. As Elena's own dreams take a dramatic turn, she wonders how she can better understand and fulfill the will of God.
