What would you do if . . .
you knew secrets that others would kill to protect?
your parents became people you didn't recognize?
a ghostly pair of highway robbers stopped you on a dark road in the dead of night?
an old toy crow suddenly came alive, and you were the only one who heard it flying around the attic?
suddenly, you were the only one who could see peril around every turn?
In fifteen eerie tales, you will meet the lonely, the troubled, the grieving—the ones who must answer these questions. They have choices; they have fears; they have life . . . and death. They will haunt you long after their stories end.
