When journalist Ray Barnes agrees to ghostwrite the autobiography of former U.S. president Michael O'Rorke, he awakens within himself a peculiar ability--he can sense imminent threats to his subject's life. Seemingly mystical occurrences prompt each of Ray's warnings to Michael, who survives each event in spectacular fashion. It's enough to make a skeptic wonder: Can there be some truth behind the man's fabled immortality?
Beginning with a dream during his trip with Michael to war-torn Iraq, Ray's prescience and reckless courage soon unite the two men in a devoted friendship. But for someone who never put much stock in the paranormal, Ray regards his "gift" as a mixed blessing, a circumstance both profitable and terrifying. Unpredictable, too. After all, it couldn't prevent Michael's recent kidnapping. That crime, along with the revelation of a closely-guarded secret, drives Ray in his search for answers--reacquainting him with a forgotten part of his childhood as he unravels the mystery behind his quirky psychic power.
You've got the start of a good idea: Ray, who doesn't put much stock in the paranormal, suddenly get psychic powers that allow him to see threats to Michael's life.
Then what? You splat into blather. Be specific. If I never ever see "forgotten part of his childhood" again, I''ll be very grateful.
