A dangerously attractive architect and a bizarre red-bearded artist had abruptly entered Rilla's life. And David was becoming a stranger -- a man she was afraid to trust. While her heart was swept with confusion, Rilla had to match wits with a cunning killer whose evil designs well might wear the mask of love.
