From award winning mystery writer R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of teen novels, GHOST GIRL IN SHADOW BAY and COUNT DRACULA’S TEENAGE DAUGHTER, comes his latest young adult haunted house tale, TEEN GHOST AT DEAD LAKE.
When sixteen year old Paige Preston and her mother relocated to Dead Lake, Michigan, they were unaware that a seventeen year old previous resident of their house had killed himself by jumping off a cliff into the lake six months earlier.
But was it really suicide?
Noah Snyder is a ghost. At least he thinks so. Only he’s not sure how he died. He recruits the cute Paige to help him get to the bottom of the mystery so he can move on.
Before he died, Noah was the captain of the boys swim team and popular at Dead Lake High School. He had also suffered from depression after losing his father when Noah was just a boy.
Paige, who had initially believed she was dealing with an imposter Noah, is stunned to find that he is a real ghost and that there were more than a few people who may have wanted him dead.
Being attracted to a cute teen ghost is no small feat as Paige tries to adjust to life in a new town and help unravel the mystery of his death. In the process, she soon finds herself in danger as someone wants to keep a deadly secret at all costs.
“BEFORE HE KILLS AGAIN is a rocket of a read. Not only a heart-thumping thriller, this is that rare novel that is downright scary. Pick it up at your peril, because you won’t put it down until you’ve read the last word.” – John Lutz, Edgar winner and bestselling author of Twist
“A masterful thriller set in the dark underbelly of Maui, with lots of fine action, down and dirty characters, and the vivid details of police procedure one would expect from an author who is also a top criminologist.
