Overview

Madison Adair didn't witness her famous mother's brutal murder. But she saw it. Saw the gloved hand...felt the knife strike...knew her mother's terror. That was a lifetime ago. But the nightmares have returned; only, this time they're of a faceless serial killer stalking women in south Florida. A killer she can't see but who knows she is watching.

Surrounded by her family, Madison knows she should feel safe, but she doesn't. And how much can FBI agent Kyle Montgomery protect her, when he can't let go of the past they've shared?

Madison is Kyle's only link to the killer, but can they find the truth before the killer strikes again? Because sometimes, it's what--or who--you can't see that holds the greatest danger....

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
At age 13, Madison Adair had a psychic vision that reenacted the terror of her mother's brutal murder but did not reveal the killer. A deranged man finally confessed and was locked up, but many years later, when he's released, gruesome killings begin. Kyle Montgomery, Madison's one time stepbrother and now an FBI agent specializing in killers' psychological profiles, returns to Miami . Clues suggest that Madison is at risk, and hidden passions impel Kyle to protect her. Perhaps in an attempt to obscure the murderer's identity, Pozzessere (Slow Burn) surrounds Madison with an extensive patchwork family (father, stepfather, siblings, half siblings and step-siblings). The plot, too, is rather variable, with interludes and revelations that seem out of context. The climax unifies and fulfills reader expectations, but he rationale for the serial killer's pathology remains thin. (Aug.)

Heather Graham


Heather grew up in Dade County, Florida, and attended the University of South Florida at Tampa, majoring in theater arts and touring Europe and parts of Asia and Africa as part of her studies. After college, she acted in dinner theaters, modeled, waitressed, and tended bar. After the birth of her third child, she was determined to devote her efforts to her writing: her dream. She sold her first book in 1982.

Today, this author's success is reflected not just by reader response and the over 20 million copies of her books in print, but in many other ways. In addition to being a New York Times bestselling author, Heather has received numerous awards for her novels, including over 20 trade awards from magazines such as Romantic Times and Affaire de Coeur, bestseller awards from B. Dalton, Waldenbooks, and BookRak, and several Reviewers' Choice and People's Choice awards.

Heather has appeared on Entertainment Tonight, Romantically Speaking, a TV talk show that aired nationwide on the Romance Classics cable channel, and CBS Sunday News. She has been quoted in People and USA Today, been profiled in The Nation, and featured in Good Housekeeping. Her books have been selections for the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild. She has been published across the world in more than 15 languages and has published over 70 titles, including anthologies and short stories.

Somehow, this prolific author manages to juggle it all--family, career, and marriage--while reaching a level of success to which few can aspire.

    Keeps you on your toes!

    I am a big fan of Graham and this is my favorite so far! I really liked all the suspense and the twist that kept you guessing till the end! Even when the big event happens toward the end she doesn't give it away immediately! Amazing! This is a great thriller with just a bit of romance thrown in but nothing sappy or I would have hated it! The family relationships were definately strange but a great story nonetheless! I love how Graham writes these stories with paranormal aspects in each! Going to look now for the next Graham book......

    Easy read, entertaining

    Heather Graham is fast becoming one of my "go-to" authors. I have not been disappointed yet. This book is fast paced and leaves you guessing, like a thriller should. If you have not read Graham before, take a chance; if you're already a fan, add this one to your collection.

    Really Good

    The suspense in this book wasn't exactly the way I imagined it would be. I don't see how Kaila would have considered having an affair with someone who was almost like family to her. And the relationship between Madison and Kyle seemed a little more like big-brother-looking-out-for-younger-step-sister than a more 'lover' type deal. Little Carrie Ann was really cute, I liked the way she was wise beyond her age at times and then turned around and acted like a normal 5-year-old. It was too funny. This book is my second Graham book and it was just as good as the first and maybe a little more. I completely recommend this book and I'll definitely continue to seek her books.

    Love it

    This book had everything I wanted in it. I couldn't keep the book down. Took it everywhere I went. Madison and Kyle was really and truly hot for each other. Jassy very secretive. Kaila just wanted to be loved.
