Devrie Haler has always believed that she can sense things that nobody else can. Whether it is the secret adventures of her third-grade students or warnings of a near-fatal car crash, Devrie gets signals from a place she cannot identify that tell her things that she has no way of knowing. Her bizarre powers are charming, even amusing to her adoring husband, Reed. Until one of her premonitions comes true.
The premonition about her own violent death.
Overcome by grief, Reed stumbles upon Devrie's journal, in which she wrote her visions down. Amazed by the accuracy of her predictions about her own death, Reed becomes obsessed with nine cryptic phrases that seem to hint at another death--this time of a little girl. Accompanied by an orphan dog present at the site of his wife's murder, Reed heads out on a roller-coaster ride that will rip apart his beliefs on good, evil, scientific progress, and the various forces that control our lives on Earth. He may have a shot at saving the next victim--if he can only come to understand what Devrie's writings are telling him.
