Akira, a ghost seer, shares that gift with Chase, her best guy friend. Through divine intervention, they pair up, and ghost bust together.
“I was murdered. My throat was slashed. August ninth was my birthday. I was murdered,” he repeated, stating the same thing over and over again. His hands hung limply at his side, his whole body went slack, and his milky gaze landed on me again. “I was murdered. I don’t know anything else. August ninth was my birthday. You can see me. Will you help me? I need to find my murderer.” It was all broken record stuff. Chase and I had been dealing with this our whole lives but fuckall if it wasn’t freaky. –Akira
My name is Akira, and with my best friend turned lover, Chase, we hunt down murderers, going off the ghost that comes for our aid. In this case, a young man, recently killed, asks for our help. We involve one of our cop friends, and things, like usual don’t go as planned.
Rayne can see ghosts, and sometimes those ghosts involve her in solving their gruesome deaths. Not always are they perpetrated by the living, and not always are they human in any form.
I stepped closer, and right as I came up to them I saw her reach into his chest and felt the twist. My jaw dropped in shock. He clutched at his chest but couldn’t do anything about it. Once the damage was done, he stumbled into a hallway that splintered off the balcony, clutching his chest. He fell to the floor. I turned back to the woman, who was no longer a woman. —Rayne
My name is Rayne, and it’s now my reluctant job to find the killer of one Michael Stallen, pronounced Stay-Len, for whatever that’s worth. Of course, he’s no help, and his wife just wants the events to be buried under the rug of time, which means little help from her, and that meant only one thing, I had to do what I hated doing, and that was visit the scene of the crime.
Alyra has a gift, the ability to see the future of a specific victim. To add to the crappy day she’s having, her best guy friend, Blake, is getting married, which makes her question whether or not she really wants to live past that moment.
I had seen enough: two goons and a whole lot of firepower. We were going to have to take them by surprise and quickly. I didn’t want anyone else showing up and adding to the problem. We needed to get Tara out alive and sent on her way. –Alyra
My name is Alyra, and my best guy friend, Blake, the bastard, is set to marry the woman of his dreams, whoever the hell that is. I will be there, even if it hurts to know that he’s marrying some chick I’d never heard of, or met, before.
As soon as I get back to NH, I’m assaulted by another vision, this one deadlier because I’d yet to fully heal, or partially heal, for that matter, and I have to take Blake with me. I fear we might not survive, or I will, and have to see him die. That was not a heartwarming thought, but I didn’t have anyone else that I trusted enough to take with me for this mission.
