An elaborately woven novel of intrigue about one of America's most curious

and enduring legends -- the enigma of the Lady in Blue

In Los Angeles, Jennifer Narody has been having a series of disturbing

dreams involving eerie images of a lady dressed in blue. What she doesn't

know is that this same spirit appeared to leaders of the Jumano Native

American tribe in New Mexico 362 years earlier, and was linked to a Spanish

nun capable of powers of "bilocation," or the ability to be in two places

simultaneously. Meanwhile, young journalist Carlos Albert is driven by a

blinding snowstorm to the little Spanish town of Ágreda, where he

stumbles upon a nearly forgotten seventeenth-century convent founded by

this same legendary woman. Intrigued by her rumored powers, he delves into

finding out more. These threads, linked by an apparent suicide, eventually

lead Carlos to Cardinal Baldi, to an American spy, and ultimately to Los

Angeles, where Jennifer Narody unwittingly holds the key to the mystery

that the Catholic Church, the U.S. Defense Department, and the journalist

are each determined to decipher -- the Lady in Blue.
