***********

After a poverty-stricken childhood, Robert Waller, now a successful businessman and firm believer in Buddhism and reincarnation, is obsessed with the idea of regaining possession of his fortune when he is reborn in his next life. When he finds out his death is imminent, he becomes terrified of repeating those impoverished years and so he devotes the time he has remaining to the task of assuring his comfort in his future life. To that end, he seeks the aid of an old acquaintance, Sir James Lorton, a well-known expert in oriental religions, to make a strange request: Waller asks Lorton to seek out the child in whom he is reborn, secure the perfect home for him, and, in due time, ensure that Waller alone enjoys the properties he has struggled so hard to amass.
The young man rejects such a preposterous request on principle. However, some years later, fate will ensure that the proposal is reconsidered, but will Lorton make the right decision?

***********

Tras una infancia y juventud marcadas por la pobreza, el ahora próspero hombre de negocios Robert Waller, firme creyente en el budismo y la reencarnación, se halla obsesionado con la idea de recuperar la posesión de sus bienes cuando renazca en su próxima vida. Cuando descubre que su muerte es inminente, aterrorizado ante la idea de que sus años de miseria puedan volver a repetirse, dedicará sus últimos días a garantizar su bienestar en su próxima vida. Con este fin, buscará la ayuda de un conocido, Sir James Lorton, un prestigioso experto en religiones orientales, a quien formulará una extraña petición: Waller pretenderá que Lorton busque al niño en quien él haya renacido, le encuentre un hogar perfecto y, a su debido tiempo, se asegure de que la fortuna que tanto le ha costado amasar vuelva a pasar a sus manos.
En un principio, el joven Lorton rechaza tan absurda petición. Sin embargo, algunos años después el destino hará que la propuesta haya de ser reconsiderada. Pero, ¿tomará Lorton la decisión correcta?
