- About the Book
The terrorist group Al-Saafi is about to unleash its newly developed weapon of mass destruction. Soon the devastating MAX 18 virus will rid the world of infidels, beginning with the president of the United States and his cabinet.
Two beautiful and extraordinary women, born only minutes apart at opposite ends of the country, share a spiritual ancestry that extends well beyond mere psychic power. Together they have less than nine months to follow a trail of secrets and unthinkable deeds to keep mankind's future intact.
This heart-pounding story explodes with corruption and deceit, goodness and love. Through a brilliant blend of intriguing characters and a fast-paced plot, CONTINUUM makes you wonder if indeed there are those among us who have been given the awesome responsibility of saving the world from a violent end.
"German-born Beider is a writer to watch, as this is only her second novel. CONTINUUM is a wild and exciting ride, and a treat for readers who enjoy suspense, thrills and a tasty touch of the supernatural to top it all off."
"CONTINUUM is a marvelous pastiche which combines the suspense of a down to Earth spy novel with an ethereal spiritual cosmology. The passages describing the realm of spirit are transcendent while the passages describing the evil logic of modern day bio-terrorists are all too disturbingly earthy and real."
"From the novel's first page to its last, CONTINUUM's riveting subject matter and interesting characters grab the reader's attention in a surrealistic fashion. The mysticism and medical details realistically interweave the stories within a story, holding the reader captive to the end."
