Ian Baringer may have stumbled upon the greatest discovery of all time. Or possibly, the greatest curse . . .
As a child, Ian lost his parents in a horrific accident, seeing them give their lives to save his. He never fully recovered, burying pangs of guilt, clinging to religion's promise that someday he'd see his parents again.
But now years later his demons have resurfaced. Despite the help of Angela Weber, the brilliant psychologist who loves him, he's in the grips of an obsession. He no longer trusts in an afterlife, he must know for certain the soul survives death.
And incredibly, he may have found a way. A risky means to steal across death's threshold and, if all goes as planned, to return with Knowledge of a Great Beyond. Knowledge that can be verified by anyone willing to follow his footsteps.
The implications are staggering. Proof of a hereafter! Perhaps of God, Himself! A Knowledge to halt wars and end forever the ancient animosities between Faiths!
Or perhaps a Knowledge to doom us all . . .
There are some who believe the living are not meant to know such things. A brotherhood sworn to protect death’s secrets all costs. It will pursue Ian and Angela to the ends of the earth to stop them. And if Ian and Angela can survive, they’ll defy the gates of heaven and hell to bring back a Knowledge hidden from the world since the dawn of creation.
