       Additional Information  
     
      Trapped in a Dream opens three decades earlier when a terrified woman is kidnapped, her unborn child withdrawn from her womb and subjected to a sinister experiment. An enigmatic doctor helps her escape and reunites her with her daughter only to mysteriously vanish again leaving a cryptic message behind: Your child carries an extraordinary gift. She will grow healthy and lead a normal life. However, if she is to stay safe, no one, not even the child is ever to know of it. What the message fails to reveal is that the girl is not the only victim; there is another: a boy…and they are connected.

    Reeling forward, when Dr. Christian Luxford ‘the boy’, now a promising neurologist, moves to Los Angeles, a bizarre twist of fate brings him face-to-face with Faith Fernandez ‘the girl’. Brutally assaulted and left to die, Faith lies unresponsive to the world in a coma. Only Dr. Luxford, assigned to her medical team, is bewilderedly aware she is, in fact, very much alert -captive in her own dreams by the damaged devise she unsuspectingly harbors- and communicating with him. Confronted with the perplexing implausibility of such a connection and the spiraling wariness of his peers, Dr. Luxford finds himself plunged into a whirlpool of secrets and lies that culminate in a frenzied race to save his patient’s life. The perpetrator of her attack resurfaces; he must finish the job: Faith holds the key that can thwart the greatest coup on freedom yet…

    Set adrift between Dr. Luxford’s frantic real-world of hidden deceptions and accelerating threats and Faith’s oneiric landscape of exotic travels and self-discovery, Trapped in a Dream, masterfully intermingles cutting-edge science, the primordial thirst for power, and the plight of unlikely heroes to join forces against a formidable foe.
