Kelly Santos sees things. Touching a newspaper, she sees a man's murder. When she inherits an aged nun's few relics, she touches Sister Grace's rosary and sees the woman's life ended by a murderous hand. In Metsy Hingle's intensely suspenseful Flash Point, Kelly, who grew up in foster care, has returned to New Orleans to learn the truth about her mysterious heritage. But Kelly's uncanny visions of impending violence lead the police to believe she's committing the murders she foretells. As Kelly seeks to prove her innocence, dark secrets from her childhood combine with one person's desperation to keep those secrets hidden the only way possible by eliminating Kelly. Hingle spins a steamy and suspenseful tale as entangling as a spider's web.
