Lia is a photojournalist, and is psychic. That trait led to her estrangement from her sister and the only man she ever loved. Both of them scoffed at her clairvoyance, but have cause to be grateful for it now.

Jared is an anthropology professor. He is extremely good looking and very attractive to women, though none have interested him since Lia left him. He has a passion for crossword puzzles and has won many competitions.

A crazed killer has kidnapped Lia's sister Sylvia and her son Deion. Lia feels there is something wrong before the police contact her about her missing sister. Jared is called in by Sylvia's former employer because of his expertise in crosswords. The two reconnect romantically, and work together to try to find Sylvia before she is killed. Hopefully they will all survive for a happy ending.

This story will keep you on the edge of your seat, it is so suspenseful. Jared and Lia are unconventional people and loners for the most part. It is understandable why Lia is not close to her sister; Sylvia is not exactly a warm person. The villain is identified early on, so most of the suspense involves the uncertainty of Sylvia and Deion's escape. The climactic scene is particularly hair raising.
