Connor Quinn left the police force because he could no longer take the nightmares that accompanied his job as a profiler. Currently, he works as a photographer for a local newspaper. Now a serial killer is on the loose, and a friend on the force wants his help in exchange for an eventual exclusive.

Copy editor Kate Devane helps Quinn with his articles. She's been living a nightmare since her husband lost his sanity and she had to divorce and hospitalize him. The closest she's come to a relationship since then is an online connection she made...with Connor, only he doesn't know she's the one he's been taking cyber walks on the beach with.

As the two get deeper into their killer's mind and the victim's lives, they discover an attraction neither wants, but one they can't ignore either.

In a story that is very current, (beware when your e-mail comes from ), Ms. Lee once again puts wonderfully complex characters, with flaws and weaknesses, together to heal. (Nov., 384 pp., $5.99)
