Jack's two escape attempts seeming disappearing acts gain him ever more enemies at the prison. Out of options, Jack accepts aid from his nemesis: jaded and award-winning journalist Nell McCall. Together they struggle to decipher the mystery of controlling ISIS encoded within the arcane text, A Course in Miracles.

About the Author: Lynn Pierson was born in Manhasset, New York, the middle of four children born to an eccentric, Mensa society electrical engineer, and a mother who sewed like a clothes designer and dressed like a model, belying her farming background. The experiences that dominated her childhood memories were of conflicting pain and adventure, of being repeatedly torn away from friends and familiar landscapes, of a father with wander-lust in his heart who continuously uprooted and moved his family from the exotic to the mundane. Overall the family moved ten times, and Lynn attended fourteen different schools.
The experience that most impacted Lynn was the four years spent, beginning at the age of nine, on the Caribbean island of Grenada. Her life on Grenada was a total immersion in a world framed with crystalline seas and malevolent looking jungles. On the island, she basked in the inhabitant s simple joy of life despite the majority s poverty. Many lived in one-room board shacks that lacked even running water.
It was from the Grenadians that she learned a depth of faith she d never before imagined a connection with one s maker born of a childlike innocence and daily immersion in nature. Here, an overwhelming curiosity drove her to spy upon the Grenadian s and to witness their secretive back-jungle voodoo practices. This underground current drove the frenzied dancing and haunting superstition that imbued the local s holiday celebrations with certain frenzy.
When she returned to the United States, Lynn graduated from Walter Williams High School, in Burlington, NC then majored in Writing and Editing at North Carolina State University.
Her escapes into writing and decades of delving into the emerging intersections between science and spirituality resulted in The Great Awakening Saga. The official publish date for the first volume of the spiritual thriller series is April 2010.
