F rom Thriller Award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff…
A terrifying novel of suspense inspired by the world-famous ESP experiments conducted by Dr. J.B. Rhine in the Duke University parapsychology department.
After experiencing a precognitive dream that shatters her engagement and changes her life forever, young California psychology professor Laurel MacDonald decides to get a fresh start by taking a job at Duke University in North Carolina. She soon becomes obsessed with the long-buried files form the world-famous Rhine parapsychology experiments, which attempted to prove if ESP really exists.
As she teams up with another charismatic professor, they uncover disturbing reports, including a mysterious case of a house supposedly haunted by a poltergeist, investigated by another research team in 1965. The two professors and two exceptionally gifted Duke students move into the grand, abandoned mansion to replicate the investigation, unaware that the entire original team ended up insane… or dead.
“Sokoloff keeps her story enticingly ambiguous, never clarifying until
the climax whether the unfolding weirdness might be the result of the
investigators’ psychic sensitivities or the mischievous handiwork of a
– Publisher’s Weekly
“A creepy haunted house, reports of a 40-year-old poltergeist investigation, and a young researcher trying to rebuild her life take the “publish or perish” initiative for college professors to a terrifying new level in this spine-tingling story that has every indication of becoming a horror classic. Based on he famous Rhine ESP experiments at the Duke University parapsychology department that collapsed in the 1960s, this is a chillingly dark look into the unknown.”
– Romantic Times Book Review, 4 1/2 stars
“Alexandra Sokoloff takes the horror genre to new heights.”
– Charlotte Examiner
“Sokoloff shines, and deserves kudos for her crisp, direct style, excellent characterization, and for weaving the real life history of the Duke Rhine lab into her own fictional landscape.”
“Alexandra Sokoloff’s talent brings readers into the dark and encompassing world of the unknown so completely, that reader’s will find it difficult to go to bed until the last page has been turned. Her novels bring human frailty and the desperate desire to survive together in poignant stories of personal struggle and human triumph. But the truly fascinating element of Sokoloff’s writing is her deep dig into the human psyche and the horrors that lie just beneath the surface of our carefully constructed facades.”
– Fiction Examiner
“Sokoloff has provided a new and interesting twist to the genre, one that will stay with the reader long after the book has been read… the hair on the back of my neck may never lie down.”

E at Your Way to Great Sex – Enjoy Superfoods for Enhanced Libido: Desire, Fertility, Energy, Erectile Function and Great Orgasms
Do you know what to eat, and as importantly, what to avoid, to help stimulate your desire for sex, to boost your sexual energy, your fertility, have good erectile function and great orgasms?
This book is about a natural solution to problems associated with your libido – the superfoods that can help you have great sex.
Why is this book so important? Because statistics worldwide show that more and more people are starting to experience problems with sex drive and sexual performance. Some of these statistics are reviewed in the Foreword to this book. There are a number of factors that may be causing these problems with libido, and what you eat is one of them. The declining quality of our food supplies is very concerning, and so the Introduction takes a brief look at our food supplies and points out the importance of consuming organic natural food for libido and health, versus the mass-produced food.
After a brief chapter on ‘What is Libido?’ individual chapters are devoted to:
• Superfoods for Stimulating Desire
• Superfoods for Boosting Energy
• Superfoods for Boosting Fertility
• Superfoods for Good Erectile Function
• Superfoods for Great Orgasms
Each of these chapters starts with a list of foods you should avoid; mood-killing foods, foods that don’t energize, foods that can cause low fertility and problems in pregnancy, foods that can cause problems with erectile function, and foods that can cause orgasms to fizzle and fail.
Superfoods that you should include in your diet for great sex are then described in these chapters.
Both ladies and men will learn more than a thing or two in this e-book. For example, ladies, do you know why you may want to feed celery to your men?
The Conclusion wraps things up by reinforcing the message: ‘healthy sex lives are enjoyed by people who are healthy and who are consuming organic superfoods to preserve that health.’
An Appendix lists problems with libido and the possible causes.
