The gates between life and death have been opened. Musician Jack Logan holds the key. In the streets of New York, he brought a man back from the dead—in plain and shocking sight of a TV news camera crew. Now the whole world is aware of his miraculous power. The media wants to expose him; the scientists to exploit him.

Living or dead, they struggle to seize and control the secret that lies beyond the . . . black horizon.
