Set in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Lisa Jackson's novel is a masterpiece of suspense - with a paranormal twist that surprises even the hard-boiled policemen trying to stop a killer before he takes his next victim. A woman's slashed, incinerated corpse is found in a seedy apartment. The killer is sure there were no witnesses. Yet his every move was seen by a beautiful stranger, from her bed in a bayou cottage on the outskirts of town ...Weeks later, another violent vision shatters Olivia Bechet's sleep. Convinced she has seen a serial killer, Olivia turns to the police, but jaded detective Rick Bentz doesn't believe her even when a second body turns up, killed in the same bizarre, ritualistic manner Olivia described. As the city panics in the icy grip of a merciless killer, Olivia's dreams are invaded by images of another murder. One that has not yet happened. One where she recognizes not only the victim's face - but also the murderer's.
