Recently released from a mental institution, Beth Gregory accepts a job as a live-in secretary/PA to the reclusive painter Josh Warrington. Beth's long red hair fascinates him from the first moment he sees her and Josh wants her to be his Rapunzel for a series of fairy tale paintings he's working on.
Beth has two major fears: that she will be sent back to the mental hospital and the visions which landed her there in the first place will return. They do; this time giving her glimpses of murders before they happen. Beth becomes the main suspect in the murder investigation and then she has the most disturbing vision of all: she will become the next victim...
"He was the one who found the body?" asked the detective. This time his question was directed at Beth, and she nodded mutely. She didn't want to be here anymore. She wanted to go away from the body, away from all the questions. The detective scribbled in his notebook, ignoring her now.
"Sergeant?" Beth asked.
"Yes?" he didn't look up from his writing.
"May I go now?"
"Oh. Sure." He waved her away, as though swatting an annoying insect and she was glad to get away. Andrew followed her and took hold of her elbow to support her. Her legs still felt a little wobbly and this time she didn't chase him away. The detective's voice rang out after her.
"Oh, and Miss Gregory?"
"What?" she snapped and turned round to face him again.
"Don't be going anywhere without telling us, will you? Everyone here is a suspect."
"I won't," she said quietly. Where could she go? The sergeant nodded and turned, his attentions now on Sarah and Jill. The paramedics were working on James. Clare was beyond their help now, and she shuddered.
"Everyone's a suspect," muttered Andrew as they entered the house. "How can he think that one of us did it? The man's a fool. It was an accident, it's got to be. She probably just went swimming and drowned, that's all." Beth didn't enlighten him any further. Maybe the less people who knew it was murder, the better.
People were standing around in little bunches, some sitting down with blank expressions on their faces. Beth scanned the room, looking for Alice. She wondered if Alice had been interviewed yet and what she had said. The crowd of faces she looked at yielded no results, but a tap on her shoulder revealed a tear-stained Alice behind her.
"Beth?" Alice sniffled and wiped her hand on her sleeve. "Can I talk to you for a minute?"
"What is it?"
"In private?" Alice glanced at Andrew and then hung her head.
