"Bill Douglas is one of the most remarkable writers of our generation. Douglas plucks the strings of suspense with expert craftsmanship that rivals D. W. Griffith’s Intolerance or Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds ... the story’s short, efficient scenes swiftly move along an enthralling, nearly cinematic cataract. Breathtaking apprehension actually reaches sublime proportions in an unforgettable climax that excruciatingly stretches tension to the breaking point. "
– David W. Menefee Review:
Pulitzer nominated American author
A crime, perhaps the greatest in the history of humanity, is unraveling the fabric of the web of life.
In Southern California, a corporate ladder-climber awakens in the middle of the night to find himself standing naked in his backyard, thunderstruck by the images flooding his mind. Compelled to write to make sense of what has just happened, he is guided toward issues in the Arctic. The feelings exploding through his heart and mind threaten to tear him apart—his only relief is in writing them down.
Fifteen hundred miles away the nine-year-old daughter of illegal Mexican immigrants is plagued by a series of cataclysmic visions about Arctic polar bears.
In Russell, Kansas, an aged Chinese woman is stunned by a violent vision of a young girl and a man connected in the vast web of life. The web has been disturbed by a crime of such proportions that its perpetrators have the blood of nations on their hands. She can only watch as the crime’s rippling upheaval tears at life’s fabric, leaving the two strangers’ lives shattered in its wake.
Their survival is entwined with the fate of us all. Will they make it?
So begins . . . a conspiracy of spirits.
