Josh Ryder, an Associated Press photographer, nearly loses
his life when a terrorist bomb explodes while he's snapping
shots of a museum. During his recovery, he begins to
experience hallucinations of someone else's life. Lucky for
him, he finds a group of individuals who believe in
reincarnation and offer him the help he needs to understand
When Josh's memories of an ancient past draws him to Rome
and a newly excavated secret tomb, he starts a chain of
events that were actually set in motion almost 1000 years
ago. The more Josh remembers, the more he feels another's

sacred and the realm of religion was shattering.
THE REINCARNATIONIST is a fascinating and unique novel with
twists and turns that kept me guessing about what would

is the perfect recipe for a fabulous novel.
A bomb in Rome, a flash of bluish-white light, and

But who is Sabina?
for answers, Josh turns to the world-renowned Phoenix
Foundation â€” a research facility that scientifically
documents cases of past life experiences. His findings
there lead him to an archaeological dig and to Professor
Gabriella Chase, who has discovered an ancient tomb â€” a tomb
with a powerful secret that threatens to merge the past
with the present. Here, the dead call out to the living,
and murders of the past become murders of the present.
