Every six years, Jessica Myer has a nightmare and someone she knows dies. This time, inexplicably, more dreams follow at three-week intervals. Each time, a woman Jessie doesn’t know is brutally raped and murdered. When she dreams her best friend will be next, Jessie comes up with the idea of hiring a body guard to keep her safe. McKinley West has no idea what he’s letting himself in for… The moment Mac meets Jessie, there’s something about her he can’t resist, but that doesn’t mean his corporate security firm will take on a two-day body-guarding job for a crackpot! Even he can’t believe he hires on when she comes back asking a second time. The assignment is not the slam-dunk Mac anticipates—Jessie is summoned to the county morgue to identify her friend’s body less than twenty-four hours later. Things aren’t always what they seem... Despite repeated warnings to keep out of the investigation, Jessie is driven by guilt and her dreams to find out if the murders are connected to an article her friend was researching about sex ads in the local weeklies. Pornography. Snuff films. Drugs. Lies. Jessie becomes entangled in a web of deceit that grows more complex the deeper she digs. And then Jessie dreams of her own death… Mac is skeptical of psychic mumbo-jumbo, but he believes in Jessie. Will they be able to find the killers before Jessie’s latest dream—the one of her own death—comes true?
Ann Simas lives in Oregon, but she is a Colorado girl at heart, having grown up in the Rocky Mountains. She is an avid reader since childhood and penned her first fiction "book" in high school. She particularly likes to write mystery/suspense/thriller with a love story and paranormal elements.
An award-winning watercolorist and a budding photographer, Ann also enjoys needlework and gardening in her spare time. She is her family's "genealogist" and has been blessed with the opportunity to conduct first-hand research in Italy for both her writing and her family tree. Some of her Italy photos are displayed on her home page at annsimas.com. The genealogy research from decade's old documents in Italian, she says, has been a supreme but gratifying challenge.
