An elementary school teacher working to revive a dying language is suddenly tormented by visions of an extinct tongue… mesmerizing words that confer extraordinary influence over people and events. Now Jon Wanamaker needs to know: is this forgotten language the key to saving hundreds of other languages currently facing extinction? Or is it dangerous, as the woman he loves—and the deranged assassin tracking him—suspect? The startling answers promise to unlock new scientific frontiers… if Jon can avoid falling prey to the Mother Tongue.
