Jason Stiene hasn't been sleeping well. He has discovered the gift of oneiromancy. Like the fabled prophets and seers of medieval time, his dreams predict the future, a future which in his case appears rather bleak. He and Elizabeth Harcourt, a woman he has yet to meet, are in the crosshairs of Eric Kirklund- a sadistic serial killer short on scruples and sanity, but long on motive, method, and madness. Along the way, Jason will be helped by a colorful cast of characters, including Deputy Jim Talbot- a super-sized bruiser affectionately known as the Hulkster, as well as a trio of comical but deadly mobsters. It's all grand fun for Eric, as he leads them on a wild rollercoaster ride, riddled with a labyrinth of cryptic clues, coded messages, and the requisite string of corpses, murder, and mayhem. Of course, Jason's task is even more daunting than he knows, for he is unaware he will be dead within the hour. Evil is afoot ... and the clock is ticking. Hang on and enjoy the ride.
