Minutes later, she stumbles on a bizarre collection of paintings that have raised a furor in the art world. Their exhibitions have drawn stunned crowds. Their prices at auction have set records. Their creator is unknown. They are The Sleeping Women - and they are rumored to depict women not in sleep, but in death.This haunting event hurls Jordan back into a nightmare she has fought desperately to put behind her - the search for her missing sister, gone now for more than a year. At the urging of the FBI, Jordan becomes both hunter and hunted in a dangerous game with the anonymous artist, who may also be a gifted murderer - a stranger who knows the secret history of Jordan's family, and the truths she has never found the courage to face.
