The Healer cover

Salvador, Brazil, November 1975.

It was an impressive act, raising the dead, and not something Manoel had expected to be called upon to do that day...

Little does Manoel, healer in the favela of Rio de Janeiro, know that the man he brings back to life wil become his deadly enemy in a struggle for control of a special, secret power. The founder of a religious cult, Caldos, sees Manoel's healing power as a threat to his own mental control of his followers. More dangerously, Caldos is determined to add to his own powers the great mental abilities of Manoel's mysterious ward João, thus giving Caldos absolute control over his world. So begins the epic struggle between the Children of the Panther and an evil and corrupt cult leader.
