It is war-torn China in the 1930s. Nationalist forces, communist rebels and the invading Japanese army are seemingly everywhere. Amidst this backdrop, a group of pilgrims, accompanied by a schizophrenic American Named John Powers, search for a mysterious female known as Her. They bring with them a golden statue, the Precious Object, within which something is tapping undecipherable messages. As the travelers try to somehow survive, John hears voices arguing over his fate. The voices, apparently working in league with Her and the Precious Object, want him to conceive a son with one of the women in the group, a beautiful Chinese pianist. Who is Her? What is the Precious Object tapping? And why do they want the American and the pianist to have a son?

Richard Lee Ferguson has been passionate about Asia since he was a small boy, when his father told him stories about his experiences as a Marine officer in China. His passion grew deeper as a result of his own experiences in Vietnam where he spent almost a year in the jungle fighting the Viet Cong, the North Vietnamese Army, and malaria. After returning from the war, he obtained a Master's Degree in Asian Studies, learned to speak, read and write Chinese, established numerous businesses in Asia, and became a lawyer. He practiced international law, advised businesses on their global operations and strategies, lectured at local universities on Asian culture and business law, traveled frequently to Asia, and participated in seminars in Vietnam and China for business and government leaders. He is currently living in a secluded rural town veiled by the forests of Northern California, retired from his professional life, and is teaching classes in history, science, literature, government, economics, and psychology to gifted high school students while continuing his writing.
