Garbriel Donner awakens from a coma in a hospital after an accident that took the lives of both his parents. Filled with anger and grief, hes also begun hearing voices. After returning home, the voices continue to frighten him, but it is a startlingly detailed nightmare of a murder that pushes him over the edge. He awakens outdoors, remembering his graphic dream, and later when he reads about the crime in the paper, Gabriel finally agrees to get help. His uncle suggests a talented psychic named Laura Dane.

Laura understands what Gabriels going through and she agrees to help him. From the first moment they meet, she knows that they are meant to be together, but the continuing nightmares make this difficult. As her visions change from images of Gabriel loving her to those of him killing her, she doesnt know what to believe.

The police are unsure of what to do. Gabriel knows even unreleased details. Is Gabriel someone who can help them, or is he the murderer himself?

Ms. Sala masterfully explores the emotional drain on her characters while painting a frightening series of crimes. (Feb., 384 pp., $5.99)

Gabriel Donner awakes from a coma hearing a voice in his head. The voice keeps saying "I'm Lost" and pleads to go home. Suddenly Gabriel is sleepwalking and having horrible dreams of murders--murders that appear in the headlines of the newspaper the next morning. The police will never believe him, so he asks a psychic to help him. Laura Dane has worked on cases like this before and wants to help Gabriel. But when she starts picturing the murders in her mind, she sees Gabriel as the killer.

This story was just "ok" for me. The person behind the murders was easy to figure out. The romance in this book was tepid. Sharon Sala's writing is very easy to read. I guess that is why I stuck with the story until the end. My rating: 3 Stars.
