"Don't talk to strangers" is old but good advice that Daniel Miller should have followed. After his divorce and the tragic death of his parents, Daniel is starting life over again. A trip to Europe seems to be an excellent start, but in a churchyard in Austria he meets an elderly man who speaks of healing at will. Unwittingly striking a bargain, Daniel discovers that his healing powers, though wonderful, give him tremendous suffering while healing, and bizarre experiences between healings. Is he powerful or helpless? Blessed or damned? The Suffering Healer is a story of the paranormal, with the mysterious Foundation playing the role of a puppet master.
