For Paris Gibson,
her popular late-night radio show is both an escape and her one real contact
with the outside world.
Since moving to Austin
to ease the pain of the tragic mistakes of the past, she has led a life of
virtual solitude, coming alive only when she hosts her show. To her loyal
listeners, she is a wise and trusted friend who not only takes their music
requests but listens to their problems and occasionally dispenses advice.
Paris’ world of
isolation is brutally threatened, however, when one listener, a man who
identifies himself only as “Valentino,” tells her the on-air advice she
gave the girl he loves has caused her to leave him and that now he intends to
exact his revenge. First he plans to kill the girl, whom he has abducted, in 72
hours. Then he will come after Paris.
Joined by the
Austin police department, Paris plunges into a race against time in an effort
to find Valentino before he can carry out his threat to kill. To her dismay,
she finds that one of the people she must work with is crime psychologist Dean
Malloy, a man with whom she shares a history that had a catastrophic effect on
both their lives. His presence arouses old passions, forcing Paris to confront
painful memories she had come to Austin to forget.
As the clock ticks
down, and Valentino’s threats come closer and closer to becoming a reality,
Paris suddenly finds herself forced to deal with a killer who may not be a
stranger at all.
