Seven years ago, Jase awoke with the mystical power to heal people—and no memory of his past. The only clue: the number forty tattooed on his arm. Driven by a mission he doesn’t understand, Jase follows his visions to those he’s meant to save. He is convinced that the fortieth person he’s drawn to is the key to finally learning the truth.

Social worker Lucas Jacobson’s job is to protect Macy. So when Jase shows up claiming he’s there to heal the child, Lucas is wary.Then Macy is abducted, and Lucas has no choice but to trust in Jase. 

But Jase is certain of one thing: if Macy dies, a dark fate awaits them all.
 

To my loving husband, who always believed I had this inside me. And to my parents, for allowing me to make memories in Naples and the Gulf Coast. I miss you very much. You are both in my thoughts daily.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the people who have helped and supported me throughout this project. I would like to specifically thank the Collier County Sherriff’s Office and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collier County for their time and information.
And also to Betsy, a sister of my heart. Thank you for your time, thoughts, feedback and cheerleading. I couldn’t have done this without you.

A whodunit in the best tradition of Alfred Hitchcock or Rod Serling. A mystery worthy of the genre. 

One of the best stories to grace Gay Authors, it is compelling, frustrating, and an amazing read, hard to out down once you start reading...you've been warned, be sure to have plenty of time for this engaging tale!!!

A magical, inventive, heartwarming story. Great adventures, ultimately redeeming love. Lots of mysteries, not all solved or solvable.

This story has it all. Drama, action, romance, and a healthy amount of supernatural activity. Having been my first read from this author, I was riveted from the first several paragraphs, and definitely hooked throughout the story. 

A GA must read.

This is a great mystery, psychological thriller, and love story.  It will catch you quickly and hold you tight.  I would suggest you not start until you have time to binge, but reading as it was posted was a fun ride.  I won't give away any details not given in the summary, because guessing at scenarios is half the fun of reading a mystery.

A brilliantly written story of mystery and suspense, with action, humour and romance all thrown in. You cannot go wrong by reading this story, it has so many twists and turns you will wonder which way you are facing, but you will not want to stop reading. It's a thrilling, gripping and fantastic story so read it. It's a recommended must-read.

This is such a professionally written story that I have come to love. With perfect dialogue and masterful written description. With the sting bite of horror and the sweetness of love and hope. I am sure if you read this story you will come to love it as much as I have!😁

This story is both an adventure and a mystery that is quite unique.  It could be a sci-fi or supernatural tale, but I'm not sure if it is either.  It is well written and has a compelling storyline.  A young man awakes in a park not know who he is or where he is. He soon learns his tasks are to save lives. It is his last task that is the most dangerous as he works to save one last life.  This story has a lot of thrills and chills.  I highly recommend reading this unusual and entertaining story.
