"Shaman" tells the story of a U.S. senator from Maryland who must learn about the mystical Akashic Records, reincarnation and shamanism in an effort to save the world from evil forces intent on heating the Earth’s core and accelerating climate change. This fast-moving, page-turner features scenes from Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Peru.

Dan Alston questioned his sanity. A successful businessman and U.S. senator, his entire life had been plagued by strange voices and visions. The episodes were ambiguous and easily ignored. But, on his 50th birthday, during a climb in The Andes, Dan Alston is involuntarily transported on a spiritual journey and shown something horrifying; an environmental apocalypse. Dan learns he is experiencing episodes from another lifetime, a lifetime from which he has been reincarnated and once lived as a shaman during the Inca Empire. His Chief of Staff, Talia Clayton, tries to help him understand the meaning of his experience and to fight his demons, both real and perceived.

While he struggles to make sense of his predicament, Dan and Talia cross paths with ancient forces reborn to hasten the Earth’s destruction by weaponizing climate change. In a race against time, Dan Alston must summon his innate courage to save the planet from an apocalyptic end. Shaman is the story of a man who thought he knew what serving his country meant until he discovered his true purpose and the power required to fulfill it.

“Like most people, I knew nothing about Akashic Records, shamanism or reincarnation when I began writing this novel. The premise of the story came from a conversation with a business colleague over coffee at the Towson Starbucks. As my colleague enthusiastically shared his interest in these subjects, I knew I had the basis for my next novel,” Polakoff said.

Ever since he was a teenager, Sam wanted to write novels. For decades, ideas for plot lines and characters invaded his mind. Occasionally, he would write down an idea or two, but using the normal excuses, too busy with work, too tired, or not enough time, he successfully procrastinated for almost 40 years. Eventually, a challenge from a mentor got him started. Today, Polakoff successfully manages the daily rigors of building a 73-year old family business and writing thrillers.

Shaman will be published in paperback and e-book formats and will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and 39,000 additional online booksellers around the world. Copies can also be purchased at http://www.sampolakoff.com.
