Author: Lisa Jackson Format: Paperback Release Date: 04/12/2014

A woman's slashed, incinerated corpse is found in a seedy New Orleans apartment. From her bed in a bayou cottage on the outskirts of town, Olivia Bechet has a terrifying vision of the murder. Weeks later, another violent vision shatters her sleep. But jaded detective Rick Bentz doesn't believe her - even when a second body turns up, slain in exactly the same bizarre, ritualistic manner Olivia described...Frustrated by Bentz's skepticism, captivated by her attraction to him, Olivia hopes she has had her last vision. But soon her dreams are invaded by more images - and this time, she sees the murderer's face as well as the victim's. Both are closer than she ever imagined.

Sarah McAdams needs a fresh start. So she's come home to the shores of Oregon's wild Columbia river, to renovate the old Victorian mansion where she grew up. Her daughters, Jade and Gracie, aren't impressed by the rundown property, and as soon as they pull up the isolated drive, Sarah too is beset by uneasy memories - of her cold, distant mother, of the half-sister who vanished without a trace, and of a long-ago night when Sarah was found outside, feverish and delirious. Ever since the original mistress of the house plunged to her death almost a century ago, there have been rumours that the place is haunted. As a girl, Sarah sensed a presence there, and soon Gracie claims to see a lady in white running up the stairs. Still, Sarah has little time to dwell on ghost stories, between overseeing construction and dealing with the return of a man from her past. But there's a new, more urgent menace in the small town. One by one, teenage girls are disappearing. Frantic for her daughters' safety, Sarah feels her veneer cracking and the house's walls closing in on her again. Somewhere deep in her memory is the key to a very real and terrifying danger. And only by confronting her worst fears can she stop the nightmare roaring back to life once more...
