What if - Everything we've ever believed about life after death is wrong? What if - Our beliefs about the reasons for much of human behavior, attitudes and mental acuity are also wrong? Suppose - Autism, homosexuality, criminal behavior, mental illness and other aberrations from the norm are caused by the same essential factor? And suppose - Changes in human behavior such as teenage angst, descent into criminality, a sudden successful desire to better ourselves, incredible success in finance or business and other transformations are due to a phenomena that is known to some but never discussed? And then what if - All this knowledge is suddenly revealed by a small group of people who have figured it out but are in fear for their lives for doing so? The afterlife isn't what he thought it was. When Daniel Nelson's cancer-ravaged body finally gives up he finds out that dying was easy compared to what comes after. He learns that while there still doesn't appear to be absolute proof of heaven or hell, there is indeed life after death--for some. But what a life! Dan's mind is now attached to that of a fourteen year-old girl, Jeannie Stanforth, who was nearby when he died, but she has no knowledge of his presence. What does this mean? Are there others like him? If so, what are the consequences for their hosts? Under dire necessity, Dan finally makes contact with Jeannie several years later and eventually Jeannie reveals the details to her father John Stanforth and to her stepmother, Rosie. Rosie immediately collapses in relief and tears because, like Jeannie, she thought she was the only one who had an attached mind, that of a young man with Asperger's syndrome who passed his incredible talent for numbers on to her. From there the three of them form a foundation to explore what all this means. They find a few others like them but then they learn that there is a Cabal of men and women with multiple attached minds who have gained tremendous financial and political power through the synergistic effect of the minds working together. The Cabal is adamant that no one learn where their ability came from. After two attempts on their lives, Jeannie and her new husband, Abe, and her parents decide they must reveal the presence of attached minds to the public in order to save their own lives. And then all hell breaks loose. An amazing, unusual, completely original novel that will challenge almost every belief you've ever had!
