Sarah Milton had an interesting childhood. Being called a 'schizo' by many people, due to her imaginary friend Anna Nigma, she didn't think there was anything wrong. She loved having Anna to talk to, especially when she had a father that was too busy for her. But, when her mother dies tragically, Anna disappears and Sarah is left to fend for herself. She learns that she can only rely on herself and throws herself into her job working with the LAPD. After an accident where she is shot, her friend Anna returns, and it might be just in time to help her break the killing spree by serial killer Raithe.
When I first started reading this book I wasn't sure what to expect. What I didn't expect was an extremely unique plot, interwoven with character development that you don't see too often. At first I wasn't sure how I would feel about the relationship between Anna and Sarah, but to see how these two friends got reacquainted and how their friendship blossomed after so many years, was wonderful. Without Anna's help, Sarah would not have been able to open up her mind to the fact that Anna wasn't imaginary at all, but a spirit searching for what happened to her in her short life here. Not only did she need Sarah's help, but Sarah needed hers. Raithe, like Sarah, has the ability to channel the dead, and this is how she is going to be able to solve the killings that Raithe is committing. There is vengeance for sure, but why are they choosing Raithe to commit the murders, and why does he agree? And how will Sarah stop him? Will she be able to convince the force that she has a special insight into the murders?
I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good plot, some paranormal twists, and characters that will leave you wanting more. A great read!
