Doug has been having disturbing dreams about his friend, Alan, who had killed himself nearly thirty years earlier. While shopping at the annual flea market one summer day, Doug is drawn to a mirror in a plain wooden frame.

One night while sitting in front of his word processor trying to find the inspiration he desperately needs to finish his latest story, Doug sees something out of the corner of his eye and it´s moving. He´s alone in the room, but when he looks in the antique mirror, there´s Alan, big as life looking back at him. Alan´s not in the room, but his image is in the mirror. What´s going on here? Find out what kind of conversation a ghost will engage you in when you least expect it, and how it might change your life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chip Wood.

In the start of the book, the narrator is kept inside a high school´s gymnasium (The Rachel and Leah Center, informally known as The Red Center) and several other females are also there. Aunt Elizabeth and Aunt Sara serve as guards and discipline them. While these two utilize cattle prods to intimidate, other guards possess guns. The women have to stay in the gym except for the walks they are allowed to take twice a day. The school´s field is shielded by barbed wire and male guards known as Angels. The women are forbidden from talking among themselves and exchange names via lip-reading. Subsequently, the narrator is inside a room that is white and scarcely furnished. The room does not contain anything that can be utilized as a weapon. As she hears a bell, the narrator changes into red attire engulfing her entire frame. A shade covers her face. She descends the stairs with her shopping basket. The narrator enters the kitchen and receives some tokens from Rita, the cook. Rita is a ´Martha´ and dressed in green. The name of the cleaner is Cora. The narrator wants to have conversations with the two like they do with each other but the Marthas are not supposed to have conversations with her kind.

Steve always forgets to buy groceries on the way to the lake house. Every time he and his wife make a pilgrimage to Maine, his first task is to drive into town and pick up essentials. Today, he leaves his wife at home with their two friends and returns from the store to find a crossbow on the lawn and arrows embedded in the chests of the three people he loves most. During a twenty-minute shopping trip, he has become the chief suspect in a triple murder. The case against him is airtight - fingerprints on the weapon, blood on his shoes - so Steve´s lawyer hires Boston PI John Francis Cuddy to crack it.

When Kate Reilly arrives in Long Beach, California, a week ahead of the Grand Prix, she is immediately plunged into a new social scene - as well as a murder investigation. Her cousin, Billy, is found dead, with Kate´s card in his pocket. The cops want to know why, and sponsors and race organizers - anxious to keep racing´s image clean - want Kate to investigate. Doubting she can solve another murder, especially that of a relative she despised, Kate reluctantly agrees. At the same time, coaching a gorgeous and talented actress for a celebrity race brings Kate into the orbit of Hollywood´s hottest bachelor. And then a local FBI agent takes notice of more than her driving and sleuthing skills. She goes from Sony Studios to Venice Beach and from Rodeo Drive to the Hollywood Hills, attending parties, power shopping, and dodging unwelcome paparazzi. Kate´s ballooning media exposure generates national commentary, testing her composure and forcing her to get ahead of the stories - whether critical or flattering. Kate´s professional dreams are also coming true. The upcoming Grand Prix is her first race with a new sponsor that is also funding an IndyCar test drive and a ride in next year´s Indy 500 - along with future possibilities in NASCAR. The downside? New sponsor Frame Savings is owned by her family, and its management, outside of her long-estranged father, is unfriendly to her - even rivalrous. Kate must stay on her toes as the Long Beach race weekend begins. She´s negotiating the next steps in her career, driving two race cars and coaching a third, discovering more about the disreputable members of her father´s family than she wanted to know, and juggling questions and murder suspects. On the track, red flags fly to warn her of danger. Off track, Kate struggles to interpret warning signs and stay out of a killer´s grasp. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Vilencia.
