Publisher Description

The dead can speak. They need her to listen.

Ever since Riley Thomas, reluctant medium extraordinaire, accidentally released a malevolent spirit from a Ouija board when she was thirteen, she's taken a hard pass on scary movies, haunted houses, and cemeteries. Twelve years later, when her best friend pressures her into spending a paranormal investigation weekend at the infamous Jordanville Ranch—former home of deceased serial killer Orin Jacobs—Riley's still not ready to accept that she can communicate with ghosts.

Shortly after their arrival at the ranch, the spirit of a little boy contacts Riley; a child who went missing—and was never found—in 1973.

In order to put the young boy's spirit to rest, she has to come to grips with her ability. But how can she solve a mystery that happened a decade before she was born? Especially when someone who knows Orin's secrets wants to keep the truth buried—no matter the cost.

An Amazing First Mystery Book!

I had never given the mystery genre a chance, so I thought, “What the heck? Sounds interesting.” And WOW is this a book to read!
The characters are great as well as their relationships to one another, the suspense of this whole mystery keeps me reading, and the thriller parts keep me on the edge of my seat! I also love the fact that I haven’t been able to predict what’s going to happen next. That’s what makes me excited to read it any chance I get. I also plan on reading the second book because the story is just so good!
Highly recommend this book!

Fun & Scary Supernatural Mystery

I absolutely enjoyed reading this chilling debut. It has everything that makes a book impossible to put down: a gripping creepy plot, a scary serial killer villain, and fun and interesting well-developed characters that will make you laugh one minute and cry out in fear the next. Riley Thomas is a introspective, intelligent, and totally relatable psychic heroine, who despite her own paranormal baggage and fears, risks her life to solve crimes to save the lives and souls of others who haven’t been able to move to the next spiritual level. The author is an excellent writer and has a way of pulling the reader into the story and keeping him/her there. I strongly recommend this book, and am so looking forward to a Riley Thomas sequel.
