By Jayne Ann Krentz

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

The brand new, heart-pounding suspense thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz.

She was pretty sure that what really scared the hell out of him was that someday he would go into a lucid dream once too often - and get lost in a nightmare.

Jack Lancaster spends his nights dreaming of fire. After nearly burning to death in his childhood home, he resolved to hunt down the man responsible - an evil cult leader known as Quinton Zane.

Twenty years later, Jack is moving into a cottage in Eclipse Bay on the Oregon coast. Now a renowned FBI consultant, his preternatural ability to get inside the killer's head has won him a reputation in certain circles. But the more cases he solves, the deeper he falls into an overwhelming mental darkness.

The only person who can bring him back is Winter Meadows, a hypnotist who's helping Jack decode his mysterious dreams. But Jack's not the only one with nightmares in his past, and when Winter falls into danger at the hands of an old enemy, they are brought together as more than just therapist and client. Meanwhile, the one man who might sabotage all their hopes is nearer than they think - and more powerful than ever.

A feverish, suspenseful read with a smouldering secret at its heart, perfect for fans of Nora Roberts and Melinda Leigh.
