A talented landscape painter and portrait artist in her early thirties, Paris Sweeney has achieved enviable success: her work sells at an exclusive New York City gallery owned by her friend, Candra Worth, and her popularity is at an all-time high. Sweeney, as she is affectionately called by those close to her, loves her work and is content with her life.
Then she begins to notice odd changes: traffic lights turn green when she approaches. Her plants are in full bloom out of season. Perhaps theyre just coincidences, but she cant ignore her dreams—lush, vivid, and drenched in vibrant hues—which are influencing her artwork. And she cant deny her growing restlessness... Suddenly, impulsively, Sweeney finds herself unable to resist a night of intense passion with millionaire Richard Worth, Candras estranged husband. But the true dangers of her all-consuming urges are about to be revealed where Sweeney least expects it: in her paintings.
After a creative frenzy she can barely recall, Sweeney discovers she has rendered a disturbing image—a graphic murder scene. Against her better instincts, she returns to the canvas time and again, filling out each chilling detail piece by piece—a shoe, the body of a victim, and soon, the victims face. But when a shattering, real-life murder mirrors her creation, Sweeney is thrust into suspicious light. Now, with every stroke of her brush, she risks incriminating herself with her inexplicable knowledge of a deadly crime. And every desire—including her hungry attraction to Richard—is loaded with uncertainty and terrifying discovery as Sweeney races to unmask a killer.
