Read an Excerpt

From The House on Stone's Throw Island

Eli stepped toward her, but when she flinched, he kept his distance. "Josie," he said, struggling to keep his voice steady, “do you believe in ghosts?”

She sneered. "As opposed to cannibals?"

Eli tried to smile but ended up grimacing awkwardly. "Forget about cannibals," he said. "Do you believe that places can be haunted?"

"I don't know. I never thought seriously about it before." Josie stared into the open closet. Her vision blurred and she could almost see the figure of the girl staring back out at her. She closed her eyes. "But, yeah, I guess I could believe that this house is haunted."

"Okay, that's a start. But what if it's not just the house?" said Eli, settling onto the mattress. He nodded toward the window. Josie turned and looked at the ruins in the distance. "What if it's the whole island?"
