This fictional narrative is based on actual events, though it is entirely up to the reader's sagacity to determine which parts are true and which are false. The main story revolves around an ancient astrological book, allegedly written thousands of years ago in India by the rishi Bhrigu, which reveals biographical details of those living today. Professor Lane, known for his critical studies of such cults and gurus as Eckankar, MSIA, and Sathya Sai Baba, goes on a quest in North India to find out if the ancient astrological treatise is authentic. However, in his search, he must overcome threats and personal attacks from several cult organizations. There are two subplots revolving around the hypnotic power of religion and the issue of paranormal projections. This is the first book in a five-part series.
