A serious head injury induces premed student Alex Buchanan to telepathically communicate with animals. She is stunned to actually experience the enraged emotions of a chimpanzee when he attacks her friend--all this on her first day as a lab technician in an American Sign Language primate research center.
Alex is highly secretive about her unwelcome gift, because she is sure that revealing it will squash her plans for achieving her dream: medical school. Taught by her parents to support scientific/medical research, she feels that her opinions about vivisection (cutting on live animals) may be challenged.
Sean Murphy, her lawyer boyfriend is snatched away. Could the FBI have realized he was on their most wanted list? Now alone, Alex is certain that she is being stalked by a serial killer. She maintains constant vigilance. The mounting body toll puts her in a panic. Do all of the dead have something in common? What could it be?
Terrified, Alex abandons her support for scientific/medical research, instead using her newfound paranormal ability. She works ferociously to uncover the killer before he destroys her human and animal friends. Will she have the strength and courage to defeat the killer? Failure will lead to certain death?
"Cries in the Dark" is a mystery/thriller revealing hidden talents of animals and humans.
