Synopsis: An FBI agent, tormented by a death he wasn't able to prevent, a crime he's never been able to solve and a love he's never forgotten, discovers that his true conflict resides not in his past, but in a…Past Life.

Haunted by a twenty-year old murder of a beautiful young painter, Lucian Glass keeps his demons at bay through his fascinating work as a Special Agent with the FBI's Art Crime Team. Currently investigating a crazed art collector who has begun destroying prized masterworks, Glass is thrust into a bizarre hostage negotiation that takes him undercover at the Phoenix Foundation—dedicated to the science of past life study—where, in order to maintain his cover, he agrees to submit to the treatment of a hypnotist.

Under hypnosis, Glass travels from ancient Greece to 19th century Persia, while the case takes him from New York to Paris and the movie capital of world. These journeys will change his very understanding of reality, lead him to question his own sanity and land him at the center of perhaps the most audacious art heist in history: the theft of a 1,500 year old sculpture from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Review: FBI Agent Lucian Glass lost his other half years ago and was unable to save her, but perhaps he will be given a second chance…as he races to stop a group who want nothing more than the highest influence.

The Hypnotist is the haunting story of love, secrets, and the quest for power. The third in a series, starting with The Reincarnationist, The Hypnotist stands well on its own, as do the first two books.

The search is still on for the Memory Tools, which are ancient objects which give people insight and access to their previous lives and potentially to untold riches, glory, and might.

Evoking the strong significance and pull that art and beauty have over our very souls, Ms. Rose has brought to life one of the world’s deeper mysteries. Going around the world and through the pages and memories of history, The Hypnotist will truly mesmerize you…
