A Vision of FireBook - 2014 | First Simon451 hardcover edition.
Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O'Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India's ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father--a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels--but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there's a more sinister force at work.
In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient--and perhaps the world.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
A child psychologist seeks to help the teenage daughter of a UN diplomat who is having mysterious psychotic episodes and uncontrollable fits, no longer herself. This leads her to travel across the globe to explore similar conditions. The connections are astounding, with global implications. Does all this have something to do with a mysterious artifact? Aliens? A historic civilization? The well-developed, strong character of Caitlin O’Hara and straightforward writing style hooked me on this book!
