Cally Jo McAllister was only four years old when her mother was murdered. As her mother's body lay sprawled on the floor of their once happy home, Cally cowered in fear, hidden by the darkness afforded her from the top of the stairs. Concealed from the killer, she clearly saw his face when he looked up from the horror he had created. Before her mind closed, and the memory became buried somewhere in a place where children lock away the monsters they cannot understand or defend themselves against, she recognized the man who had forever changed her life. Three years of intensive counseling with a talented and caring children's therapist finally helped Cally to bring back the monster. Unable to say his name, Cally drew a picture so accurate that the killer was immediately identified and brought to justice. Now, in college and studying psychology herself, Cally works as a police sketch artist with an uncanny knack for bringing the images of criminals to life on paper. Her ability is fascinating to some and frightening to others, for it obviously comes from somewhere outside of herself. When a nightmare she had as a child returns with a vengeance, and with it circumstances that cause Cally to wonder if the man who paid the price for her mother's murder was guilty after all, Cally's life is thrown into a whirlwind of turmoil and fear. Could the murderer have been someone? Could that person be closer to her than she can possibly imagine? GRAVEN IMAGES will take readers on a rollercoaster of suspense and suspicion, and leave Cally poised precariously between life and death, love and deceit.
