Strangers don't stay strangers for long in Innocence, Mississippi, as witty, urbane, and beautiful Caroline Waverly is quick to discover.
Fame has taken its toll on the celebrated concert violinist, what with grueling tours and high-pressure performances, climaxing in an all-too-public breakup with the world-class conductor who is also her lover....
All Caroline wants from her stay in Innocence is a chance to be out of the spotlight - to live quietly in her family's secluded old bayou home with its lace-curtained windows and shady front porch.
But she is about to learn that secrets have no place to hide, and in the heat of a steamy summer night it only takes a single spark to ignite a deadly crime of passion....
For the sleepy bliss of Innocence is shattered forever by the deadly strikes of a killer at large, and Caroline falls under the spell of a town with a darkly deceptive nature...and a smooth-talking, irresistible Southern charmer whose seductive touch awakens her own carnal desires - and ensnares her in a killer's crazed dreams.
