Lightning gave her powers, but she paid a steep price.
Forensic artist Molly Nyland survived a freak lightning strike as a child that marked her skin with Lichtenberg figures and gave her the ability to tell when what people describe doesn't match what they actually witnessed. This truth she can never share, because if her abilities are exposed, the criminals she has helped put away could go free.
Assigned to a brutal murder case, she is shocked to discover that her new partner is Desmond Rankin, the detective she briefly hooked up with five years ago. And to her dismay, the sexual tension between them still sparks hot and heavy.
Des has his own mysteries, which involves the details of the bad drug bust that killed his former partner. He moved to Prairie Falls for a fresh start. The last thing he needs is being distracted by the forensic artist who could solve his case and thereby resurrect his career. But how is he supposed to resist the woman he's never forgotten?
As Molly and Des struggle to keep their secrets, more bodies are discovered and it's clear that the town is dealing with its first serial killer. To find the perpetrator before another life is lost, Molly must stretch the limits of her powers, not only to save her town, but to actually stay alive.
