I gave this book five stars. There was a lot of research done to write this captivating book.
Michael James Lewis, aka Mike was a geophysicist working outside Cairo in 1998 when he was thirty. He discovered from a co-worker that he had a special gift. He had spent fifteen years denying his gift of visions.
"After a light dinner, I went to the gym for a grueling workout. It was something I did nearly every night of the week. When on a jobsite, I bought a temporary pass to the nearest gym. My body was lean and hard from the punishment I gave it, but that’s what I needed to find restful sleep."
Mike has a weekly housekeeper, Maria. He realizes there's not a lot of dirt but his living area needs attention. "As a dedicated bachelor, I’m tidy. I subscribe to the rules left over from childhood. If you open it, close it. If you break it, fix it. If you get it out, put it back, and so forth. Nevertheless, dust accumulates and any home takes on a stale odor when windows and doors remain closed for long intervals."
Here is Mike's description of his visions as he tells it to Nelson, who is the first person he ever told. "'Here it is in a nutshell: every time I close my eyes I see visions in a kaleidoscope. It is not the kaleidoscope of childhood filled with pretty-colored glass. It’s a kaleidoscope filled with black and white images of the future. It crackles and sparkles like the one I had as a kid, but rather than geometric shapes, this one shows broken images of future events. Visions that sometimes torment me. The images are reflections, not clear pictures. The visions I see are fragments, like a stained-glass window. What I see appears to use the same principle as a kaleidoscope, where several reflective surfaces are placed at an angle to one another.'"
His friend, Nelson Fitch taught Psychology at Columbia & had a clinical practice, suggested that he start keeping a journal & he did.
Mike was a confirmed bachelor but realized he missed having someone who missed him. He met Casey D'Angelo & they started a relationship. He found everything about her refreshing. Then his maid Maria found an unusual listening device inside the pillow case as she changed the bed linens.
He didn't know if it could be because he'd told Nelson about his visions or if it could be a jealous boyfriend of Casey's. Either way, it was disturbing & he contacted a friend at the FBI about it. He also had security videos installed in his home.
In a discussion with Nelson about learning to accept his 'gift' he learned: "'“It’s about acceptance. You’ve heard the analogy that it takes more muscles to frown than to smile. Well, the same concept could be applied regarding denial and acceptance. Acceptance is a more natural state whereas denial requires concentrated energy.'"
I received a complimentary kindle copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.
I look forward to learning more about Mike in the upcoming chronicles. He's a well developed character.The next book is Spyglass, Book 2.

It is bad enough that Mike Lewis has always had second sight--although he was not aware of it--but when he met a man on a job site site who poked him in the middle of the forehead--things got even stranger. He began to see future events when he closed his eyes--but the scenes were fractured--like a kaleidoscope.
He has been hiding this from his friends until he could not take it anymore. That's when things really take off!
Beware the ending is a cliff hanger which I could not ignore! I ended up purchasing the 7 remaining titles in this series!!
These were not written as stand alone--far from it!! Once you read this you are definitely going to want to buy the others!
This was an interesting book. It starts out with an in depth description of the main character, then then goes on to slowly build the suspense by giving the reader more and more information. The main character, Mike, has an interesting ability, and a problem. A big problem. As the reader goes deeper into the story, more and more curves and twists are developed, leading to "didn't see THAT coming" moments. I really enjoyed this book. A very good read. I definitely want to read the rest of the series.
