Whispers from the Dead

Author: Joan Lowery Nixon
Reviewer's Age: Grade 9

After a near-death experience Sarah begins having hallucinations where she sees and hears a Spanish woman crying for help. After a thorough investigation, she finds that a dreadful murder was commited in her house-and the Spanish woman is trying to give Sarah clues to catch the murderer. This novel was a suspenseful thriller, and although I wasn't fond of the plot focusing on her hallucinations this book kept me enthralled from cover to cover. It is not a good read if you're home alone at night!
