A clever thriller set in the cut-throat world of fashion and design and Dallas O'Connor is an extremely engaging heroine.

Fashion coordinator Dallas O'Connor arrives at work early to find a dead model and a knife-wielding man. She manages to run away from the man and notify the police who treat her as a suspect.

That night, she discovers an intruder in her bedroom, the man from that morning's horror scene. He claims he isn't the killer, and when Dallas calms down, she realizes Raul, the intruder, is telling the truth.

So, Dallas sets out to uncover the real killer is, hoping to clear her name in the process. But all to soon, she and Raul become the target for a twisted mind.
