Rachel de Luca’s new life as a sighted individual did not start out well, and it continues to slide into the unreal. When she said goodbye to police detective Mason Brown she did not expect to see him again at the end of a whirlwind book tour — or over another body. However, when dreams turn into nightmares and she begins to slide into someone else’s mind — this time the victim’s instead of the killer’s — she realizes that danger is once again on the hunt for her.
