A new patient - 24-year-old Lucy Lowell - has come to the semi-retired psychologist Alex Delaware, straight from the jury of a serial killer's grisly trial. The trial was harrowing enough, but now it's triggered a recurring and haunting dream in which Lucy - as a little girl - watches a gang of men bury a young woman's body in the woods. Dr. Delaware knows he may find the creepy dream's origin through hypnosis. He hopes to bring to the surface what seems to be Lucy's buried childhood memory. When Lucy becomes adamant that her life is in grave danger, it's up to Dr. Delaware to find out if her fears are imagined or if a desperate killer wants to eliminate a witness to a 20-year-old murder.

Dr. Alex Delaware doesn't see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.

"Exciting . . . loaded with tension and packed with titillating insights."--The New York Times Book Review

Now Lucy's dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The power of the dream, its grip on Lucy's emotions, suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It may be the repressed childhood memory of something very real. Something like murder.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt.
