Gene Richards is haunted by a voice, and he doesn’t like what it’s saying. He’s trying to ignore it—pretend it’s not real—but the voice has plans for Gene. A long time ago, something bad happened in the town of Magnolia—something that Gene’s grandfather and his friends want to keep quiet. The voice has started hurting those who were responsible, and it won’t give up until Gene uncovers the town’s eerie past. Determined to clear his grandfather’s name, Gene and his friends start reading old newspapers and digging for the truth. But the voice is running out of patience, and Gene must do something before his grandfather becomes the next victim. 

James Lincoln Collier has captured the fear and curiosity that come when the past is called into question. The suspense lasts to the final minutes in this ghost story turned mystery.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A satisfying page-turner and will keep middle-grade mystery fans engaged until the very end.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Sean Crisden delivers an eerily effective performance, giving a Poe-ish atmosphere to this dark children’s story. With a low, throaty voice he captures the entity that seeks revenge for past wrongs by possessing various residents of Magnolia. Crisden’s vocal versatility conveys the personalities of the bold yet simple-minded Sonny and spunky tomboy Sammy as they help their friend, Eugene, fight off the ghostly specter’s attempts to drive him to murder.”


  • “A complex, spooky page-turner for middle-grade readers.”


  • “The first-person narrative, fast-paced prose and careful plotting make this a satisfying page-turner.”
