Ella Cleary has always had an eye for the truth. She has synesthesia, which means she is able to read people via the waves of colors that surround them. Her unique gift has led her to trust very few people outside her family since her parents died in a fire. So when a handsome young journalist appears with no colors surrounding him at all, her senses go on high alert.
But while Alec is a mystery, Ella feels a connection to him she cant ignore. Something about him feels familiar, and she is able to talk with him in ways she cant with anyone else. Then just as feelings develop between them, Alec drops a bombshell: he believes her parents deaths were no accident. And she may be in more danger than shes ever realized.
Soon Ella doesnt know who she can trust or even who she really is. As family secrets begin to unravel and fact and fiction collide, it becomes clear that the only way for Ella to learn the truth about her past is to find a killer.
