Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679446656, Hardcover)Santa Fe dream scientist Dr. Jody Nightwood becomes a beautiful pawn in a deadly contest when she receives a generous grant to conduct a study in her own sleep clinic--a grant that, unbeknownst to her, has been funded by the CIA.
The chief of a covert-operations subgroup believes he has discovered the key to artificial intelligence--if computers can be made to dream like humans, they can be made to think like humans. But his nemesis within the agency is secretly running a competitive operation, and will stop at nothing to see him fail.
Jody's painstaking research into the nature of dreams reaches a dead end until she turns to less conventional investigative techniques. Looking to the mystics and shamans of Santa Fe for help, she enters the nightmarish but finally healing realm of the subconscious, drawing closer and closer to the most elusive mysteries of the human mind.
When she meets in daylight the darkly handsome figure who has appeared in her dreams, she begins a dangerous love affair that will catapult her into the highest levels of government conspiracy and intrigue, and leave her fighting to protect her lab, her career, and her life.
Written with Jack Butler's trademark intelligence and style, Dreamer is an electrifying novel in which nothing is what it seems and even the mysterious operations of government are less dazzling and powerful than the hidden mechanics of the subconscious--a gripping new work from one of America's most original and inventive writers.
