This novel unfolds through five interconnected chapters, each one an epoch in the life of Brian Miller.
In the first chapter, “Revelations,” we are introduced to Brian Miller, who operates under the illusion of being a psychic who weaves a facade of supernatural abilities.
The disappearance of James Carter’s son sets the wheels of Brian Miller’s destiny into motion. Johnny Carter was abducted on his way home from school; the police’s best efforts could not locate the child.
Desperation drives James towards Brian, seeking psychic guidance on his son’s whereabouts.
Afraid of being exposed, Brian attempts to steer James back to law enforcement, emphasizing their expertise in kidnapping situations. James has a different idea; he escalates the situation by pressing the muzzle of a gun to Brian’s head, coercing his ‘psychic’ intervention—to find his son or die.
Thus begins a tense odyssey through Staten Island and Queens as the reluctant psychic and the desperate father delve deeper into the unknown. Brian grapples with unexpected mental impressions and flickers of images he cannot rationalize. He perceives them as fragments from his subconscious, possibly his mind’s attempt to navigate the perilous circumstances, yet he is uncertain.
The pair find themselves in the desolate fringes of Kennedy Airport in Queens, leaving Brian to ponder—could there be a sliver of reality in his psychic visions? The intertwining of fate and desperation thrusts him into a spiral of revelations.
