Summary :

In a quiet home in the Fort Lauderdale suburbs a woman writhes in agony, her senses filled with the vision of an intruder entering her home, threatening the life of her child and herself. In that morning, realizing that she has psychically witnessed a murder in someone else's home, she picks up the phone and calls the police...

In a posh estate, a few miles away, a man lies murdered. His wife has vanished. Besides the body, the bullets, and the mysterious black box strapped to his waist, the only clues the police have are a collection of Tarot cards sent to the victims home and a nuisance call from a Fort Lauderdale woman who claims to have had a vision of the murder.

For Wayne Sheppard, a Florida detective racing against time, the killing of famous criminologist Andrew Steele and the disappearance of his beautiful wife, Rae, are about to test everything he has ever believed and everything he knows about logic, police work, and scientific truth. For when Sheppard meets bookstore owner Mira Morales, the woman who make the call to his office, he soon realizes that she holds the key not only to a murder and disappearance, but to a realm of conspiracy and violence that is far greater than anything Sheppard is prepared to face.

Suddenly, Sheppard and Mira are caught up in the secret life and times of murder victim Andrew Steele, a man who had contacts within the federal government and a covert program that may have come back to haunt him. And when Sheppard's investigation is taken over by a beautiful, ambitious, ruthless FBI supervisor from Washington, the hunt for Rae Steele becomes a harrowing cat-and-mouse game, where too many of the players, including Mira Morales herself, can "reach" into each other's minds, and where the difference between a secret kept and a secret exposed is the difference between life and death.

Fifteen years ago, seven people were recruited into Project Delphi and trained in the deadly use of psychokinesis. From the beginning, the project spun out of control and was used as a weapon of terror against U.S. citizens themselves. Now, Delphi is unraveling. Of the seven original members of a psychic swat team, only three are alive. And one of them is determined to survive- at any cost...
