A woman's slashed, incinerated corpse is found in a seedy New Orleans apartment. From her bed in a bayou cottage on the outskirts of town, Olivia Bechet has a terrifying vision of the murder. Weeks later, another violent vision shatters her sleep. But jaded detective Rick Bentz doesn't believe her - even when a second body turns up, slain in exactly the same bizarre, ritualistic manner Olivia described...Frustrated by Bentz's skepticism, captivated by her attraction to him, Olivia hopes she has had her last vision. But soon her dreams are invaded by more images - and this time, she sees the murderer's face as well as the victim's. Both are closer than she ever imagined.
