Short Summary

Sarah Winslow’s son is abducted by a man who blows the lock off her door in an explosion of light. She calls the police, but they suspect she murdered her child and is using the abduction story to cover it up. When they attempt to arrest her, she runs, her only choice to find him, herself.


When the police surround the kidnapper’s house, the kidnapper harnesses Sarah's son’s power of telekinesis to stir up tornado-like winds, sending onlookers into a panic. Desperate, Sarah fights her way inside, where, against the backdrop of unfolding chaos, she kills the kidnapper and saves her son.

Development Pitch

This is an exciting paranormal adventure that would be best suited for film. Since it starts both a child and adults, it will draw audiences from various age groups. Amazon reviews of the book are rating it at over 4 stars and endorsements have included: "Gabriel Burns offers up an imaginative mashup of serial killer crime procedural and paranormal noir with an unnerving villain, non-stop action, and a plucky kid you’ll root for until the very end. " —Emily Carpenter, best-selling author of "Burying the Honeysuckle Girls" “99 Souls is a haunting story that brings our worst fears to the surface and then whips them into a frenzy of panic and helplessness. What resources we have, become useless; what hope we manufacture, is crushed. GOD IS BLIND. And yet, without the darkness, how can we truly understand or appreciate the light? A powerful story, with twists and turns up until the very last words.” —Richard Thomas, author of "Breaker" and "Tribulations"
