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.Read Less

Bentz finally blossoms
It is hard to tell a story that is disjointed without losing a reader. The story unfolds nicely and with precision - yet lets the reader wonder where it will go next. That the Detective is skeptical lends itself to the story and allows the reader to believe the truthfulness of the plot. Psychic abilities abound in our society and few people believe. The unfolding of the story has the Detective crossing over to belief of the woman he originally calls a "nutcase". The peril hits dangerously close to home for our beloved hero and one can sense the impending doom. Of course, the hero and heroine will not allow such peril to destroy their lives. That the end does not immediately follow up with marriage, but just a man and a woman trying to find a medium with which to share their lives allows us "mere mortals" to believe that we can also succeed in the game of live/love. A must read for anyone who enjoys a good Jackson novel and also for anyone who likes the humanistic approach without the fairytale endings that oft are produced in books such as these.
