The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Joan Lambert is a raven-haired beauty that hails from the Ozarks of Missouri and has been an “investigator” since the age of fifteen, trained by her foster mother. Her dark eyes and dark past give her aura a haunting cast yet she is precise in her immediate assessment of any given situation. Joan has garnered a top position with Robbery Homicide in Los Angeles working Special Section which means she is thrown into a cast of characters of hustlers and manipulators and the most proficient spin doctors on the planet. She brings not only her own tragic past but also her horse sense to bear on complicated high profile cases. She darts between the dark shadows and all the sunshine and movie lights but it’s her willingness to journey into the nourish corners of Los Angeles that solves her cases. Movie producers, porn stars and psychics lend their own kind of magic to the unraveling of an unsolved case of ten missing women and an unhappy organization of runaways in the underbelly of Hollywood's lime light.
Joan Lambert is living the LA dream turned nightmare. A dead rich girl, nine women held hostage, a lost dog and Tommy, a missing ten-year-old, are interlaced in her high profile Hollywood case. Her own demons include a raging, stalking ex, her own dark past and a career as an elite homicide investigator that's balancing on a hi-wire in the circus spotlight of the movie and music industry. If it weren't for her partner, Gus, a movie buff and pseudo enlightened life coach, she'd be a goner. In this very unlikely scenario, love rears it's head in the form of curly-haired Italian surfer/environmentalist that shows up at an "anonymous" club during an undercover investigation.
When Joan is taken hostage we go on a ride with the most brutal of female villians. In this action-packed noir-ish Hollywood tale, we learn the true color of fear and the horror of ego gone bad.
