Self-help guru George Pinknell picked a bad time to be buried: his work was just about to become useful. Meanwhile, graduate student Kendra Lloyd faces her own uphill climb as she tries to escape school with her sanity intact. Yet when the resurrected Pinknell drops into Kendra’s life, Kendra’s problems multiply. She must decide where her allegiances lie—whether with an increasingly distant husband, an oppressive advisor, an intriguing colleague, or with her mysterious new mentor. As Pinknell runs for his life and Kendra dismantles hers, both must scale the cliffs of the mind within the Memory Tower.
