Synopses & Reviews
Allison DuBois, inspiration for the hit TV show Medium,
shares fascinating stories of encounters with the dead and adventures as a criminal profiler.
Her visions have helped solve crimes; her instincts have helped find missing people.
She can predict future events and read your mind.
When she was six years old, Allison's deceased great-grandfather came to her with a message for her mother: "I am okay, I am still with you. Tell your mom there's no more pain." Allison shared his comforting words with her mother and thus began a lifetime of creating connections between loved ones and those they have lost.
In this stunning book, Allison shares fascinating stories of her encounters with people who have passed and her adventures as a profiler for various law enforcement organizations. With wit and compassion, Allison shows us what it is like to live with these special gifts and talents and also tells about her struggle to live a normal life as a devoted wife and mother. She shows how learning to accept her own gifts has helped her accept the unique gifts of others and how her compelling desire to relieve the pain of others has helped to define her own life, a life committed to the search for ultimate truth.

--Chad Lewis and Terry Fisk, hosts of the radio talk show The Unexplained and authors of the Road Guide to Haunted Locations books
