Jordan Glass, a photojournalist on a well-earned vacation, wanders into a Hong Kong art museum and is puzzled to find fellow patrons eying her with curiosity. Minutes later, she stumbles upon a gallery containing a one-artist exhibition called "The Sleeping Women," a mysterious series of paintings that has caused a sensation in the world of modern art. Collectors have come to believe that the canvases depict female nudes not in sleep but in death, and they command millions at auction. When Jordan approaches the last work in the series, she freezes. The face in the painting seems to be her own. This unsettling event hurls her back into a nightmare she has fought desperately to put behind her - for, in fact, the face in the painting belongs not to Jordan but to her twin sister, murdered one year ago. At the urging of the FBI, Jordan becomes both hunter and hunted in a duel with the anonymous artist, a gifted murderer who knows the secret history of Jordan's family, and truths that even she has never had the courage to face.

"There is nothing dead about the writing or reading of Iles's latest--both are imaginative and exciting from beginning to end. Award-winning Mississippi journalist Jordan Glass, whose twin sister disappeared 18 months earlier, comes upon a portrait of her reposing in death for sale to art connoisseurs. Thus begins the intense search for a serial killer who has abducted and painted dozens of beautiful women. As the plot twists and turns, Breck captures Jordan's Southern accent, a male FBI agent's staccato pronouncements, and an art professor's courtly manner. Susie Breck is at her best when portraying a steamy alliance between heroine and agent and in the tense moments leading to the breathless conclusion. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
