by John F. Rooney
Three strangers in different parts of the world have three nightmares in which a young Indian man stares menacingly at them. The dreams invoke funeral pyres, flaring skulls, and feral beasts. On a land and sea tour from Singapore to the Taj Mahal, the three separately begin to see their threatening daemon in real time. They give him a name-Ramesh-but cannot find a reason for his pursuit of them. The suspense builds as their interloper becomes more intimidating with each successive sighting. In London the three people feel that they are free of their daemon pursuer, but that is where tragedy strikes. Why did all this happen? The reader cannot help being drawn into this labyrinth of excitement and suspense.
