Joanna Lander, a scientist researching patients' Near Death Experiences (NDF), collaborates with another scientist who has perfected a psychoactive drug that can send a person into NDF and pull them back.

"[M]asterfully blends tragedy, humor, and fear in an unforgettable meditation on humanity and death." - Therese Littleton, Amazon (May, 2001).
