Upon receiving an letter anonymously two weeks prior, ghosts from the past began to come back up to the surface. Nearly every night for the past couple of weeks, poor James has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare regarding Emilia. In this nightmare he feels that Emilia is trying to tell him something. Perhaps it is nothing, or perhaps it is about how she died. His nightmare came from the very depths of his soul, haunting him silently until he left his guard down and he experienced an ugliness he had never realized existed inside of him. Despite the ugliness and horror that plagued him, James felt as if his soul held the key to answer his reoccurring dreams and that promised to relieve him of his horror. His doctor, Doctor Jonathan assured him that his dreams were connected to his own subconscious state where successions of emotions, sensations, images and ideas occurred in his mind with him knowing it. Doctor Jonathan claimed that this phenomenon was more prevalent in his sleeping state. He also believed that every picture that James saw within his dreams was a form of unspoken contact from Emilia. It wasn't just Doctor Jonathan that agreed. Richard also agreed that James was perhaps suffering from the loss of Emilia. Even Jennifer believed that Emilia was trying to reach out to James to tell him something in his dreams. However, Jennifer went a step even further and asked James to go to Emilia's tomb and attempt to communicate with her that way. However, when James goes to meet Emilia's parents, his adventure truly begins and he begins to learn things he never thought he would. After believing for so long that Emilia died at the hands of a brain tumor, he quickly learns that is not the case. After hearing from Emilia's mother that her daughter had been killed, James feeling confused goes to the Iredell County Jail to meet Emilia's killer, Adam Jackson. This is when James realizes that Emilia was indeed murdered by the hands of a cold blooded killer. Every memory James has of Emilia turns out to be from a pack of twisted and horrible lies and he soon realizes he was not the person he thought himself to more

About MR Joannes Rhino

Joannes Rhino was born in Indonesia in 1980. He was educated at the local state school until graduation in 1998 and continued to study in Hospitality University. He was then employed by a financial company in Jakarta, where he began to receive many awards related with customer satisfaction. Having been working the same routine for years, he started to write a novel to kill the time. Finally, his first novel "Etzhara" was published by the biggest traditional publisher in Indonesia and made him one of the best young writers under thirty at Khatulistiwa Literary Award in 2009. Feeling confident with the writing skill he has, he published the second novel in the same year by another traditional publisher in Jakarta. He then began to receive many invitations to attend book signings, talk shows, radio interviews, and other literature activities. This second novel made him an overnight success. Feeling secured in terms of financial and social life, he felt something was missing. The turning over point of his life had occurred when someone handed him a novel by Paulo Coelho "The Alchemist" and a motivational book by Rhonda Byrne "The Secret." Those books really changed his perspective about life, and that was when he decided to let go of the glamorous life of Jakarta and hit the road. He was 30 at the time. That year, he self-published a collection of poetry in the United Kingdom. This poetry collection was made during the most troublesome moments of his last 10 years of life, when dark clouds enveloped him. Anger, anxiety, emptiness, guilt and lost love coalesced into a single, unbearable emotion. With all the savings he got from the previous job and book royalties, he traveled to Bali and worked for a timeshare company. Three months was all he needed to understand that it was not what he wanted. He then changed course to a publishing company as an Editor in Chief. As much as he loved dealing with words, his passion to see the world kept haunting him. Finally, he decided to travel to Australia and Thailand for 8 months. It was between 2011 and 2012 when he tried to fit in with a new life; working from farm to farm, hitchhiking from place to place, and volunteering from school to school. He went all around Australia and returned to Bali with tons of stories to tell. He is now working freelance as a ghostwriter, copywriter and scriptwriter. He is based in no place, as he is still in search for a place called "home."show more
