After a near-death experience, artist Ashley Price is compelled to paint visions of the dead, and fears she's gone crazy. Then she paints a man buried alive and, recognizing the surroundings, she rushes to save him.
Instead of being grateful to her for rescuing him, Detective Jack Sullivan accuses her of being in league with a serial killer. He swears he will put her behind bars. Except, the more time he spends with her, the more he falls under her spell. Can he trust her, or is he walking into another deadly trap?
After reading Dana Marton’s Agents Under Fire, I was in still in a Dana Marton kind of mood. Good news for me was that Deathscape was loaded and ready for me to read. It has been a while since I have read a thriller of this caliber, so it was nice being able to dive in and become engrossed in the plot that kept me guessing.
Jack’s obsession with the serial killer has completely skewed his mind; it seems to be the only thing he can think about. This adds a nice little twist to the story. He sees Ashley as accomplice at first and wants nothing more than to break her so that he can catch the killer. However, the more he visits her, the more he realizes that it is not going to be that easy.
Marton has thrown in tons of characters that could possibly be suspects that kept throwing me off of who was the actual killer. Along with the constant guessing, the relationship that starts between Jack and Ashley had me flipping through the pages. This was a nice little mystery to read.
