Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
After Sarah Darnell's near-drowning, she feels haunted by a shadowy ghost-like presence. So when her father announces he is being transferred to Houston, the family welcomes the opportunity to put Sarah's tragic experience behind them. But the moment Sarah enters their new house, she is paralyzed by a cold mist that is only apparent to her. And she is convinced something horrible has happened in that house. Her fears are confirmed when she learns that the previous owner's son had been charged with murdering a delivery girl, and the maid had mysteriously disappeared. But nothing prepares Sarah for the cruel trick perpetrated by a new friend--a trick that backfires and endangers Sarah's life. A master at creating compelling suspense novels, Nixon ( The Dark and Deadly Pool ) has written yet another carefully plotted, subtly terrifying thriller. Ages 12-up. (Oct.)
