Now, drawing on some dark ancient secrets and mystic texts, he’s about to get his wish. Imagine a pint-sized Mickey Rooney on steroids, trading up into a body like Burt Lancaster’s. Then imagine paying the biggest price of all….Assuming another man’s identity, Tom discovers he must also take on his sins, debts, and enemies. He may be living large—but now there are those who want to make him pay for the big man’s sins.
Throughout his young life Hubbard was fascinated and intrigued by mysticism and magic.
