Buddha's clone, victim of a conspiracy, or just plain crazy? If only he knew. Psychotherapist Sid Menk is dragged into a war between spiritual factions vying for control of the planet.

Armed with newfound insights and abilities, he marshals esoteric energy to match the power of those who seek to exploit him. The twists and turns of this contemporary fantasy thriller send readers on a wild ride, and we guarantee that no one will predict the outrageous ending.

“COATTAIL KARMA isn’t just a book. True, it’s an exciting, fine piece of writing with plot twists galore, peopled with characters that behave like villains and metaphysical superheroes. And it’s certainly fun to read. But it’s so much more than that. In other words, Verlin Darrow’s outrageous fantasy masquerades as something that readers can easily grasp and be wildly entertained by, but along the way he also shares wisdom and his own quirky take on the meaning of life in mind-blowing fashion. Well, if it isn’t a book in the ordinary sense of the word, what is it? An experience? Yes, that’s closer.
Who can write such stuff and get away with it? Verlin Darrow can...and did. I can’t recommend this book more highly. I love it.”
