When Max Savage opens his practice in a remote town, he hopes it's the start of a new life. He's got his reputation as a skilled surgeon, his two brothers by his side and a fresh chance. But soon Max discovers he can't escape a past riddled with accusations of murder or the faces of two dead women. Especially since another woman is missing, and he was the last to see her alive.
Annie Duhon knows all about nightmares that shatter life's dreams and the need to escape the past. But her fascination with Max grows, even when disturbing rumours start to surface, and her darkest visions seem to play out in living colour. Can she trust Max with her secrets and her deepest desires? Or is he the spectre she sees when she sleeps - a killer stalking women with his cleansing fire? Is she about to become his next victim?
