This fast-paced thriller and romantic suspense novel won First Prize for Fiction from Writer's Digest, and Independent Publisher magazine awarded it a First Place IPPY. Claire DuMond can't believe her father would just lapse into a coma for no apparent reason. Even his doctors are mystified. But one thing is clear, she must find the cause before it's too late. Claire sets out to do just that, and soon arrives on the Caribbean island of Martinique. And wouldn't you know? Her boyfriend followed her. Why does he never seem to listen? There they meet a Voodoo priest who may be able to help find the answer. Does it have to do with the eruption of Mt. Pelée that killed more than 30,000 inhabitants some fifty years prior?
