Since 1933, hundreds of motorists traveling around White Rock Lake at night have reported picking up a beautiful female hitchhiker who claims to be the unfortunate victim of an automobile accident.
After asking to be taken home, once the drivers arrive at their destination, the woman disappears from the back seat leaving only a puddle of water where she had been sitting.
Is this apparition the troubled spirit of a woman who died tragically long ago at the lake or simply the construct of a mass hallucination?

No one has written about this much murder, sex, and suspense in Dallas since J.R. Ewing left town! (Guerrero) brings each of the colorful and complex characters to life so much so that you put yourself in their shoes and experience their dreams, motives, and fears! Each chapter is more exciting and entertaining than the last!

I gobbled up this book in a day and half. It's a great ghost story with interesting characters, lots of twists and turns, and plenty of chills and frights. I can't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series to see where the main character, Laura Milton's, curiosity, courage, and adventurous spirit take her next!
