Allie Nichols knows she's being pursued by a ghost. But her friend Karen calls her a liar and doesn't want to hear "stuff like that." It is Allie's old pal Dub who listens eagerly as Allie tells him about a voice that guides her safely down a steep cliff side, the face in her mind's eye of a girl who begs "Help me," and a terrible nightmare in which that girl falls to her death. Who is the girl? Is she the ghost? And what does the ghost want from Allie? As Allie discovers that her role is to avenge a murder, she also learns something about friendship, false and true, in this gripping ghost story and murder mystery by a popular and highly regarded author.

 While this novel's basic plot elements—a ghost out for revenge, a sinister real-estate deal, a child who knows about a murder, but no one believes her—have been worked over numerous times, DeFelice (see review, above) gives it unusual warmth, with vivid characterizations.
