When one of her patients, an ordinary housewife, conducts a high-tech terrorist attack in a mall near Washington, D.C., psychiatrist Dr. Katrina Walker is thrown into the forefront of a top-secret government investigation.
Working alongside maverick intelligence officer Jim Clark, the grandson of a Native American shaman, Walker applies her skills in deciphering human energy fields to discover the point at which the ultimate pain becomes the ultimate pleasure.

The goal: to save the world from a sophisticated network of operatives who threaten to unleash the ultimate weapon us.
Piecing together stories from their pasts and clues from forensic analysis, Walker and Clark set out to stop a twisted genius plotting to create a super-race of programmed operatives triggered into action by the most basic, and powerful, of human impulses. Explorations of the human subconscious quickly turn to adrenaline-charged action as Clark and Walker face brutal killers, experts in the use of conventional and psychological weapons in a desperate race for the forbidden text.
Inspired by her own near death experiences, her psychological investigations, and her father s counterintelligence experience, the author delivers an exceptional thriller that combines pulse pounding suspense with an astonishing and heartbreaking tale of family strength. The first in a projected series of novels, The Forbidden Text will hook you with relentless action and a penetrating look into the depths of the human psyche."
