Elusive Dreams: a mystery in 40 chapters, with various dreams and journal entries.
Heroine: Dayna Smithers - a darned good actress, as she’d be the first to tell you. She wakes from dreams of blood and haunting laughter, dreams that didn’t feel like dreams.
POV character: Kate Douglas - blunt, tactless, purposefully lacking in most of the social graces, can’t remember a word she hears but her visual memory is eidactic plus. Kate dreams of fire, of a friend dying in the middle of a dancing flame.
Detective: Roland McDougall - looks like a bluff Irish street cop but his work clothes cost more that a week of meals. If dreams, he tells no one.
