Jamie Conklin is a perfectly average kid in all ways but one: He sees dead people. He even talks to them, sometimes, before they fade away and eventually disappear in the days following their expiration. Some of them have amazing stories to tell and they *always* tell the truth. When Jamie's mother gets involved with a crooked cop and makes the mistake of not keeping Jamie's gift to themselves, things get really interesting. All kinds of doors open up when the dead can't keep their secrets.
Crime, mystery, and supernatural horror that is most bizarre, but it's the life in his characters, the sense of knowing them, and the perfect illustration of time and place that really sells it all enough to scare the daylights out of you. He's done it again!
