FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his
arguments that religion is one of society’s greatest antagonists. What
Daniel doesn’t know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer known
only as “Eve” will end in his own death at Eve’s hand. Twenty minutes
later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those twenty missing
minutes of life.
It soon becomes painfully clear that the only way to stop Eve is to
recover those missing minutes by dying . . . again. What isn’t nearly as

not only about Eve, but about himself. Daniel will have to face haunting
realities about demon possession in the modern world-and reevaluate his
prejudice against religion-to stop Eve.
