About the Book

From the archives of the Tayan Research Network...a worldwide institute researching the paranormal...comes a story of murder, mystery, and manifestations of incredible psychic and supernatural powers.

The death of psychic researcher James Turner, while alone in one of the most haunted houses in Houston TX, has shocked the entire Network. Jim’s friends and co-workers cannot understand how it could have happened. Michael Morriset...a disturbed young man tormented by extraordinarily powerful psychic abilities that he can barely control...lives with the terror of having witnessed Jim’s death in a dream at the exact moment that it occurred. Or was it a dream? Could Michael’s self-described “inner demon” have killed Jim without his realizing it?

Against TRN directives, Michael assembles a team to move into the house and solve its mysteries. The only people who will accompany him have their own motives for going...fear, pride, greed, jealousy -- even another murder. As the malevolent power of the house grows stronger, reaching out to claim more victims, Michael and his team face a countdown to a terrible final conflict where the most dangerous opponent that they face might just be the renegade spirit of Jim Turner himself.
