Josh Ryder is a man out of step, out of his depth, and
running out of time. His life as a news photographer is
changed forever when an explosion has unexpected side effects.
Never knowing when he will slip into the essence of a past
life, he's a man in quest of proof that his strange lurching
flashes of other lives have a basis in truth.
His visions make clear that he has failed, and failed again
to save the women who depended upon him. He is driven to
make certain this life is different. This time he will not
let the women he loves be destroyed.
Memory stones, ancient rune-scribed jewels holding the power
of incarnation are unearthed in present-day Rome. They could
hold the secret to reincarnation, and the answers Josh
seeks. The stones are also a focus of danger, triggering
death each time they have come to light.
The peril of the past revisits the present, sharper,
clearer, as a defenseless life hangs on the ambitions of a
man obsessed with power over eternal life.

A bomb in Rome, a flash of bluish-white light, and
photojournalist Josh Ryder's world exploded. From that
instant nothing would ever be the same.
Josh recovers, his mind is increasingly invaded with
thoughts that have the emotion, the intensity, the
intimacy of memories. But they are not his memories.
They are ancient...and violent. A battery of medical and
psychological tests can't explain Josh's baffling symptoms.
And the memories have an urgency he can't ignore â€” pulling
him to save a woman named Sabina...and the treasures she is
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.
