Description

In the tradition of Michael Crichton and Margaret Atwood, an apocalyptic thriller that pits cutting-edge science against God and asks—who will win?
A strange phenomenon is sweeping the globe. People are having visions, seeing angels, experiencing events that defy reality. Bizarre accounts pour in from distant places: a French teenager claims to have witnessed Joan of Arc being burned at the stake; a man in New York dies of malnutrition in a luxurious Central Park apartment; a fundamentalist Christian sect kidnaps and murders a geneticist.

Then there is the graffiti WE ARE BECOMING that has popped up in every major city around the world, in every language. And everywhere people are starting to talk about John Astor, the mysterious author of the book that seems to be at the center of it all.

After a rash of suicides around the world by individuals experiencing the time traveling hallucinations, psychiatrist John Macbeth and a team of FBI agents and scientists assemble to find out what’s going on before it’s too late. Is this a spiritual phenomenon or something more sinister?

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 04, 2014 – The pseudonymous Galt, the author of two crimes series under his real name of Craig Russell, successfully juggles a wide cast of fully developed characters in this inventive near-future thriller. Around the world, people in all walks of life begin having unusual visions of the immolation of Joan of Arc, or, in the case of U.S. President Elizabeth Yates, of William Taft, in shirtsleeves, walking a dog on the White House lawn. Yates's hallucinations have national security implications, as they call her fitness to govern into question, and psychiatrist Josh Hoberman is summoned to a secret meeting in D.C. to offer his guidance. The ante is upped when people begin to have tangible manifestations of the visions (e.g., a woman who believes she survived an earthquake that never happened has her arm broken by masonry that never fell). Few readers will anticipate the jaw-dropping conclusion, and fans of thoughtful scientific thrillers will hope Galt will continue in the genre.
