Overview

The Spear of Longinus is stolen... An ancient document is moved... A journey to find the Grail unfolds... NEW YORK TIMES reporter Maggie Seline has written an explosive book that offers a controversial solution to the Middle East crisis. During a live radio interview, a kidnapping attempt is made and Maggie vanishes. Her disappearance sets in motion a worldwide women's march toward Jerusalem that threatens the status quo and parallels a frantic race to possess ancient talismans. The Spear of Longinus and the Holy Grail are sought by men who will stop at nothing to increase their power-over religion, governments, and the planet's energy sources. An upcoming peace conference hides the true motivation of Giovanni Mabus, outgoing president of the European Commission, who intends to exploit an ancient mythological connection between the two legendary treasures. In league with the clandestine pseudo-Masonic group, Propaganda Due, he sets in motion events aimed at furthering political and military chaos in the Middle East in order to accomplish his aims. Meanwhile, Maggie and Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Michael Sonada race to thwart the sinister plot to undermine the conference-a race that takes them into the forbidden regions of Nepal to make an earth-shattering discovery. Pure Vision brings together ancient myths and contemporary challenges in a rich tale of past and present good and evil. Perri Birney seamlessly weaves myth, history, and contemporary events in an intriguing scenario that encourages a closer look at the spiritual forces that infuse the world's political battles. PERRI BIRNEY has traveled extensively throughout Libya, India, Nepal and Tibet and is the editor of several Tibetan Buddhist publications. The author lives in upstate New York.

Editorial Reviews

Whole Living - Paul Hertel
A thrill ride in the vein of The Da Vinci Code but with a much larger vision for all of us. The alchemy is part historic fiction, part spiritual adventure, and a variety of interfaith metaphysics that metamorphosize into a golden vision of world peace...that women in every country can unite to demand the end to senseless slaughter seems pragmatic and attainable. Plot elements of mystical revelation...dark WWII occultism and cinematic shooting chase scenes...A page turner.
Chronogram - Staff Reviewer
Birney infuses this epic novel with feminine echoes of The Da Vinci Code and The Red Tent, with her eyes on the prize of world peace. New York Times reporter Maggie Seline courts controversy by championing an international Jerusalem. When she disappears, women around the globe march for peace in her name, even as powerful men vie for two ancient artifacts.
Daily Freeman - Cynthia Warren
The book, which revolves around a New York Times reporter, presents a fascinating story full of intrigue and history. Birney's fiction seamlessly blends science and religion into a tale worthy of Indiana Jones. Politics, religion and economics come together in this story to present possible solutions to current international dilemmas. The book left this reader confident that idealism is not dead and that, sometimes, it can be the road map by which we might save ourselves.
