"A thought-provoking masterpiece that will have people talking"

Be careful who you photograph! Photographer Josh Ryder is intrigued by a red-haired young mother. He focuses. He moves in, but the next flash of blue-white light is not from his camera, and from that moment on his life "-his lives"are not the same.

Watch out for the brilliant symbolism of colors: the red- or copper- haired ladies, the flashes and flashbacks, the blues and greens of the present and the heavier, thicker air of the bloody past.

Was Josh once Julius, the humane and civilized Roman priest of an all-inclusive belief-system under siege? If so, does the Vestal Virgin Sabina have a modern counterpart, too?

What of the ancient and dangerous treasure that Julius and Sabina may be fated to protect for all time? What iconoclastic memories might be released by - the Memory Stones - if they were found in modern times, and fell into the right "or wrong"hands?

MJ Rose is an international best-selling author, and no wonder! This bold, masterfully-crafted 451 page book is a page-turner, but no quick read. You will not want to miss a word. You will find yourself turning back, in wonder and delight (at least, I did) to confirm and recheck details, and then to pause and ponder.

It's worth the time to read, in my opinion, The Reincarnationist is a thought-provoking masterpiece that is going to be talked about! I found it absolutely gripping

A bomb in Rome, a flash of bluish-white light, and photojournalist Josh Ryder's world exploded. From that instant nothing would ever be the same.

As Josh recovers, his mind is increasingly invaded with thoughts that have the emotion, the intensity, the intimacy of memories. But they are not his memories. They are ancient . . . and violent. A battery of medical and psychological tests can't explain Josh's baffling symptoms. And the memories have an urgency he can't ignore—pulling him to save a woman named Sabina . . . and the treasures she is protecting.

But who is Sabina?

Desperate for answers, Josh turns to the world-renowned Phoenix Foundation—a research facility that scientifically documents cases of past life experiences. His findings there lead him to an archaeological dig and to Professor Gabriella Chase, who has discovered an ancient tomb—a tomb with a powerful secret that threatens to merge the past with the present. Here, the dead call out to the living, and murders of the past become murders of the present.

International bestselling author M.J. Rose offers a spellbinding, psychologically riveting epic thriller of secrets, history and murder that will challenge the way we think about who we are and who we were.

International bestselling author M.J. Rose is the author of eight previous novels, including Lip Service and three titles in the Butterfield Institute series: The Halo Effect, The Delilah Complex and The Venus Fix. She's also the coauthor of two nonfiction books on marketing. Rose is on the board of directors of the International Thriller Writers and lives in Connecticut.
