Synchronicity. Not only does award-winning investigative journalist Sebastian Stephens believe in it, synchronicity guides his life. Stephens was teased throughout the day by the spirit of an Indian boy he encountered in his dreams. When a cryptic message from a Native American apparition asks him to save her boy, he figures it must have something to do with the spirit-boy, but he doesn't really understand his mission until he arrives in New York City. There at the invitation of his friend Detective Cliff Nolte, synchronicity points the way. Since their last collaboration, Nolte has been appointed head of a special task for investigating a suspected ring of pedophiles that includes a number of Catholic priests in Brooklyn. He happened to call his friend Sebastian in New Orleans to come to the city as a consultant right before Nolte is called about the discovery of the body of a young American Indian boy near a charity donation bin. The cause of death is apparent drug overdose, but there are too many questions to simply close the case. The next day when Stephens is taken to the morgue, he recognizes boy from his dream. Clearly, the death of this boy is linked to the subject of Nolte's task force. The synchronicity is much too strong to be otherwise. The other connections the two men uncover will leave Stephens staring into an abyss he never suspected existed.
