Every single person she's drawn has ended up dead. And now she's drawn herself.  

A brutal attack left world-renown artist Paige Jeffries a recluse, completely broken. All she wants to do is be left alone to try to survive. But in her sleep she's drawing violence. Murders. She can't go to the cops, they already think she's crazy.

They might be right.

Homicide detective Brett Wagner remembers shy Paige from high school and is driven to find her attacker, to believe the quiet beauty when nobody else does.

Because when he witnesses firsthand what Paige is drawing in her sleep, Brett realizes they are scenes from actual cases. Portland has a secret serial killer, with Paige somehow linked to his mind.

And he's coming for her.

Genre: Romantic Suspense
