A horror story by John Savage, originally published under the pen name Brian Donovan.
Talking to ghosts is a strange way to make a living, but for Melody Lane it was better than waiting on tables. And she had the skills for it. Having always been psychic to a degree, and wanting to help people, it seemed natural to contact the dearly (or not so dearly) departed – for a fee.
When a young girl wants her to confirm that her missing sister is dead, Melody becomes enmeshed in a dangerous web of murder and torture. The sister is dead, and the man who killed her plans to do much more than just that one killing. Even worse, he does much more than just kill his victims: he smashes every bone in their bodies, one by one, while they are alive.
Melody can talk to ghosts but will that help her combat this fiend? And when he comes up with a weapon to counter all she can bring against him, the stakes become much higher. She may soon become a ghost herself…
