If the reader is of the same mind as
protagonist Jax Alexander, she might
not buy into all the woo-woo stuff, but Graham's tale unfolds with such a leveling degree of detail and realism that
even the cynic is convinced. It's a roller-coaster ride that bounces between some of the most politically unstable regions
of the world and back with heart-stopping speed.

A remote viewer who works in secret for the U.S. government, October "Tobie" Guinness can see what's happening on the other side of the world without leaving the confines of a dark and shadowy room. This time, however, she has to hook up with CIA agent Jax Alexander, a loose cannon who is always on his superior's blacklist, on a chase to stop what could be the next apocalypse. Jax questions the woo-woo stuff, but he's going to have to rely on Tobie's talent and steady nerves as they race to discover the secrets behind a sunken World War II Russian submarine.
