PROLOGUE

Tess Jones Flannigan Carson OToole was sound asleep. Sprawled across her bed, she slept as if she were on an island splashed with vivid color and surrounded by an ocean of raucous sound. Her hair was a spill of red on the pillow, her silk gown a ripple of purple. One high-heeled slipper, hanging precariously from her toe, sparkled with gold sequins. The hands on her clock radio pointed to 2:00 p.m., and a rock and roll song blared.

Tess slept on.

A Siamese cat sat on the windowsill, switching his tail and watching his mistress. After a long perusal, he leaped from his perch to a nearby chair and from there made a flying leap to the pillow. He sat like a silent Buddha for a while, then leaned down and licked his mistress’s bare shoulder.
