In a remote, Himalayan monastery, Matt Lester has devoted five years of spiritual preparation for this moment: it is his destiny to open an ancient, sealed scroll containing prophetic wisdom the world urgently needs. But when his time comes, violent assailants steal the scroll. Matt is caught up in a dangerous, high-stakes hunt to recover it, turning him from the pursuer to the pursued.
On the other side of the world, the results of scientist Alice Weisenstein's mind-body healing research are about to be revealed. Things take a sinister turn when her supervisor goes missing - and she realizes she is being followed. Guided by the lamas, Matt's search for the scroll takes him to Alice. The pair become caught between powerful influences and escalating threats. Together they must decide who they can really trust.
The Secret Mantra weaves breakthrough science and spiritual insights into a heart-stopping storyline. It won't just have you turning the pages. It will shake up your whole idea of who you are, and the transformation of which you are capable.
