Seattle police sketch artist Maggie Barnes has an extraordinary gift. She listens as traumatized crime victims describe their ordeals - and then uses those horrifying recollections to draw dead-on sketches of the assailants. Some cops think Maggie is telepathic, that she can actually enter the victims' minds. Only Maggie knows the truth behind her rare talent ... and she isn't telling. But her secret may be exposed when a madman seizes Seattle in his terrifying grip. He abducts women and blinds them, leaving them barely alive. The police have one hope: the lone victim who might recover her sight. But they don't know that Maggie has her own dark connection to the monster - an eerie link that may stretch back to a string of unsolved murders. To stop the escalating terror, Maggie will have to push her abilities to the breaking point - even if it means confronting a predator whose powers seem to have no bounds....

Professional reviews

"A serial rapist has Seattle in a panic. Maggie Barnes, empathic sketch artist for the police, is usually able to draw accurate composites from the details she garners by entering the victims' minds and "seeing" what they saw. This time, however, the rapist blinds his victims before brutally assaulting them, leaving Maggie at a loss. Alyssa Bresnahan's tone and tempo provide subtle shading to Hooper's terrifying tale. Bresnahan brings credibility to John Garrett, whose sister was attacked; to the FBI's Psychic Task Force; and to the physically and emotionally scarred victims. The violence may be excessively graphic and the conclusion too contrived, but the combination of a monstrous villain, suspense, romance, and a touch of the paranormal and Alyssa Bresnahan's spot-on performance makes this a chilling listening experience.
