Ám a Manhattanben kibontakozó sorozatgyilkosságok minden addiginál nehezebb feladat elé állítják Lucast: a gyilkos ugyanis kizárolag gyönyörű nőismerősei közül szemeli ki áldozatait. Galen Chandler, egy népszerű tévécsatorna hírolvasója karrierje csúcsán áll, mégis boldogtalan. Ám amikor elhatározza, hogy munkáját feladva elhagyja a várost, a gyilkos telefonja egyszerre mindent megváltoztat...

Katherine Stone - Szenvedély
A ​történet hősei egytől egyig sikeres és elismert emberek. A gyönyörű, szőke Alexandra Taylor ünnepelt színésznő, s a tévé képernyőjén egy népszerű sorozat főszereplője. A visszahúzódó, húszéves Catherine ismert és tehetséges zongoraművész, aki diplomamunkája megírása után nagyszabású koncertturnéra készül Amerikába és Európába. Mindkét testvér gyönyörű és mindketten sikeres karrier elé néznek. Bár gyermekkori emlékeik beárnyékolták kapcsolatukat, főleg Alexandra volt Catherinel szemben rideg, közönyös, és néha gonosz, míg Catherine mindig szeretettel és megértéssel viselkedett Alexandrával. A történet a "Kegyetlen emlékek"-hez hasonlóan egyszerre több szálon fut, s egyik része egy csodálatos szigeten játszódik a Földközi tengeren, közel a francia partokhoz. A sziget neve L'Ile des Arcs-en-ciel (a Szivárvány sziget), egy kis hercegség, amely a kívülálló szemével csodálatos világ, és csak a palota lakói tudják, hogy a sziget múltja körül sötét titkok lappanganak. A sziget története végigkíséri a regény cselekményét, és kulcsszerepet játszik Catherine származásában is. A sziget egyfajta meseszerűséget is kölcsönöz a regénynek, de mindezt a mindennapos történet elemeinek keveredésével teszi.

Katherine Stone - Ígéretek
Dr. ​Elizabeth Jenning, a San Franciscó-i Pacific Heights kórház híres transzplantációs osztályának tehetséges sebésze egészen addig csak a karrierjének él, amíg a kórházba nem érkezik Dr. Nicholas Chase, az új főorvos, akibe azonnal beleszeret. Ám a titokzatos Nick senkinek sem enged betekintést az életébe, és bár Elizabethel szorosan együtt dolgoznak, kapcsolatuk távolságtartó és udvarias marad. Nick nem mutatja ki Elizabeth előtt az érzelmeit, mert attól fél, hogy a szerelme tönkretenné a lány életét. Egy hirtelen bekövetkezett tragédia azonban leleplez minden titkot, és Elizabethet súlyos döntésre kényszeríti, elvállalja-e élete eddigi legkockázatosabb műtétét... A gyönyörű, egykor szupermodell Larisa Locksley barátnőjéhez, Elizabethhez menekül a férje elől, aki hat éve állandó terrorban tartja. A megszállott férj beleegyzik ugyan a válásba, de Larisának mégsem sikerül megszabadulnia tőle. A reménytelennek tűnő helyzetből a kiutat egy állásajánlat jelenti, az Ígéretek modelljeként Larisa újrakezdheti karrierjét, és már-már úgy tűnik, minden jól alakul, amikor szörnyeteg férje újra felbukkan, és felforgatja boldogságát...
