As Ellery Winters watches her mother's casket being lowered into the ground, a stranger tells her murder may have been the true cause of death and that the vice presidential hopeful, Abraham Lincoln Jones, could be involved. Desperate to uncover the truth, Ellery agrees to go under cover as Jones' assistant.
Twenty-one years ago, when Luke Madigan was a high-school senior, he watched a whore gruesomely mutilate her client. The event has haunted Luke's nightmares ever since. For years, the psychotic hooker, who became known as “The Eye Doctor”, has left a trail of victims, but never enough clues to find her. When The Eye Doctor strikes closer to home, Luke decides to put an end to the madness, even if it means walking right into the Doctor's waiting room.
Though Ellery and Luke don't realize it, they have something in common beyond hungry sex ignited by burning passion that's fueled with lies. But neither will be denied, despite the deadly danger closing in on them.
