In this chilling contemporary thriller an inspired supernatural undertone sets the scene for a hauntingly unforgettable reading experience of enlightenment! Secrets of the past are blended together; from 19th Century London with notorious Jack The Ripper to ancient China during the Han dynasty. The delicately interwoven narrative is wonderfully complex and detailed; so as to keep you guessing throughout and on tenterhooks as to what more shocking revelations may unfold. Entwined within a labyrinth of character-studies that cleverly interconnected, I was sucked into a scintillating story of substance and deep philosophical wonderment. The scope of the plot is vast and visually `epic' as though imagined for the big screen!
I felt like this novel was a mixture of modern, 21st Century super-sleuth SHERLOCK and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" (with hidden clues and perplexing puzzles) all wrapped up into one addictive masterwork. Lindahl's unique perspective opens up such possibilities and really allows you as a reader to personally place yourself within the plot, thus you're left feeling enlightened and in awe. White Horse Regressions mixes together murder and kidnapping with mystery, contemporary crime and a supremely singular study on reincarnation. It is a book that gives a different outlook on death and which really `gets under the skin' of the cast of interesting characters. Spinechilling suspense and tension build up to a climatic, startling conclusion that will leave an impression impregnated upon the mind...
Themes such as vulnerability, power, invincibility and truth are all explored in this deep novel that contains a concoction of genre and sub-plots. I was most impressed by this rather remarkable, original novel *which I won through a Goodreads, first-read giveaway.
Mr. Lindhal's suspenseful novel moves backwards and forwards in a karmic dance that also twists and turns; a profound and poignant narrative about reincarnation as it relates to love and friendship, vulnerability and power, the myth of inevitability and the possibilities for better times to come.

Here is a case that calls for something well beyond ordinary law enforcement and forensic science. And so Hannah calls upon the noted expert/hypnotist, Glen Wiley, who specializes in past life regressions--using hypnosis to unlock the memory patterns that a person's former lives imprint on them, but which most adults have entirely suppressed from their consciousness.
And here begins a mystery tale that spans almost two millennia and spins on the axis of pivotal historical events: the Jack-the-Ripper murders in Victorian London and the introduction of Buddhism into China during the reign of Emperor Han Mingdi, which resulted in his establishment of China's 'cradle of Buddhism,' the White Horse Temple, in 68 A.D.
The scope of the plot is epic. It would make a wonderful movie. Paige's murder has replayed uncounted times through history. Solve one from among them and you solve them all. End the cycle and you end the torture of many. This is the task that Hannah and Glen set out to accomplish.
And this is the world to which author Steve Lindahl transports us.
Is it our world? Or is it merely a parallel universe in which imagination achieves greater freedom? Lindahl leaves the choice to his readers. There is no proselytizing here, no heavy-handed pitch - just an exposure to the ideas. Based on many of the cues, I suspect Lindahl is a Unitarian Universalist, as I am, and as is the protagonist Hannah Hersman. Here is a faith that encourages its practitioners to explore mankind's best ideas, to freely search for truth and meaning in a supportive, nurturing environment. "Truth is best found in Community."
In the world to which Lindahl invites us death is not a barrier, just a minor setback. This changed perspective opens great plot possibilities. It's a new ride. And it's a chance to consider our own lives in refreshing ways. For me, that's always a good thing.
