Sometimes evil lingers so close, you can feel it....

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....

Baker & Taylor
Seattle police sketch artist Maggie Scott must draw on her unique talents as she races against time to help stop a deadly serial rapist--a vicious monster who kidnaps, assaults, and blinds his victims, leaving them barely alive--stalking the city, unaware that she possesses her own dark link to the madman. Original.

& Taylor

After a madman starts to abduct women and blind them, police sketch artist Maggie Barnes must confront the truth both about her eerily accurate crime scene drawings and about her past, which links her to the current crimes.
