In 1945, the Pope has a vision of an impending attack against his church by the forces of evil. He is warned that this must be kept secret, so only a few men are told of the details. No one can be trusted, not even the members of his own clergy.
Now, in 2008, Danny Sheridan is investigating the disappearance and subsequent murders of children in Maine. Each child turned up seven days after they went missing, bearing injuries of a depraved religious nature.
Ever since the first abduction, Danny has been having nightmares. They are the same type of dreams he had as a child growing up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. In these dreams, he is in a church, and he can see the bodies of the victims. They call out to him, trying to convey a message he cant quite make out.
Danny teams up with an old FBI friend to try to prevent another murder. But as the case starts to take a darker turn, Dannys dreams intensify, and he starts to dredge up memories from his youth, memories of a day in Belfast when a member of the church stole his innocence.
As the case unfolds, it seems the killer may have a personal vendetta against Danny. Then his daughter goes missing, and Danny only seven days to overcome his childhood demons and to stop the evil the Pope was warned of.About the Author
