Psychiatrist Carla Turner sets out to disprove reincarnation. To
make her point and strike a blow for science, she enlists Amy
Duran, her favorite patient, for a past-life regression that Carla
believes is destined to fail.
But a potent, experimental drug used for the study works all too

a Japanese World War II veteran, who finds twenty-first century
Austin, Texas, to be as shocking as the female body he now

drug company as well as her headline-chasing former professor,
a woman determined to establish that past-life regression exists.

asks the thought-provoking question, what if reincarnation is a
biological fact? And if it’s real, how do you face all the good and
evil you’ve done—in this lifetime or your last?
