About the Book:

Tristan Shays is on a mission he doesn’t fully understand. For the past two years, he’s been plagued by visions—terrifying images of strangers in peril—and given explicit orders to warn the victims before it’s too late. If he ignores the directive, he’s stricken with unbearable physical pain until he sets out to help. On a September night in Key West, Florida, Tristan warns exotic dancer Rebecca Traeger that she must quit her job and return to college in Ohio or risk dire consequences. The last thing Tristan expects is for her to hitch a ride. During their journey north, he discovers that she may just provide the key to his mysterious burden. But the assignments don’t stop coming, and Rebecca finds herself in increasingly dangerous situations, just by being at Tristan’s side.

About the Author:

Joel Pierson is the author of numerous award-winning plays for audio and stage, including French Quarter, The Children's Zoo, The Vigil, Cow Tipping, and Mourning Lori. He also co-authored the novelization of French Quarter. How he has time to write is anyone's guess, as he spends his days as editorial manager at the world's largest print-on-demand publishing company. Additionally, he is artistic director of Mind's Ear Audio Productions, the producers of several popular award-winning audio theater titles, audio books available on, and the official audio guided tour of Arlington National Cemetery, among others. If that weren't enough, he also writes for the newspaper and a local lifestyles magazine in his hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. He stays grounded and relatively sane with the help of his wife (and frequent co-author) Dana, and his three ridiculously loving dogs.
