Description

Carter Spence is a 26 year-old accountant out of Boston who has an out-of-body experience following a car accident that kills his parents.  He views the chaos from above the scene of the accident, then passes through the tunnel and reunites with relatives who have long been dead. A woman he does not recognize approaches him and says, "Welcome, son." Her message to him is that he needs to be aware of his true identity and should follow signs that will lead him there. She mentions mountains, but Carter is jolted back into his physical body before she can finish. After burying his parents, Carter heads west and meets a free-spirit named Brenda, whom he is drawn to on many levels. She becomes his travelling companion and leads him to Boulder, Colorado, and to an old white house of an old man named Martin. Diaries, hypnosis, and past-life regression reveal a bizarre connection between these three. Carter discovers that the truth to his identity can only be found by pursuing the answer to whether he is the reincarnation of his biological father in what is shaping up to be a love affair rekindled beyond the grave.

Advance Praise

“An awesome ending to the Desert Son trilogy. Action packed and full of suspense, this book will hook you and keep you until the end. I highly recommend this entire series to all.” –Rebecca Larsen, 5-star review All Things Book

“As a big fan of Maynard, I absolutely fell in love with his latest, Spiritual Intervention. He is a true storyteller, and that the feeling of the story, the continuation of Carter and Brenda's story lingers and compels the reader to want more. I read this book from start to finish in one sitting, and I was anxious at each page turning. It's hard to get away from a stalker, especially when it's a spirit. Carter and Brenda wanted to get a fresh start, but there is no such thing in literary land, especially when there is more room for dramatics. This time, the evil spirit focuses on Adam. It's a glorious and magnificent showdown for peace of mind and peace of life. Compelling piece of work, and a grand conclusion to the trilogy.” –Amy Shannon, Bookshelf Reviews

“Carter and Brenda believed they had finally moved on and escaped from Martin, but they were wrong. Now he is coming after their son Adam. The third instalment is a thrilling read from start to finish as the couple fight to put their literal demon to rest. A great addition to the series. Highly recommended.” –S.K. Gregory, Storyteller 

“Mr. Maynard continues to surprise his readers with the unique way he approaches the spirit world. Very well written and plotted. Characters you'll love and just enough twists to keep you off balance. Refreshing and brilliant, you will be unable to put this book down. It taps your heart and soul from page one. This is the third book in the trilogy. I found it just as enthralling as the first two books. Read this one or the other two alone or as part of the trilogy, you'll want to buy copies for friends. Perfect for a book club read too.” –Melanie Adkins, Have You Heard My Book Review

“An awesome ending to the Desert Son trilogy. Action packed and full of suspense, this book will hook you and keep you until the end. I highly recommend this entire series to all.” –Rebecca...
