But good intentions are easy ...following them through is another matter. Lisa is one such extraordinary teenager. For her, every day is about life and death. Because she can hear the dead talking, and they never leave her alone. But on a short break in London, the tussle between life and death takes on a new twist. A brilliantly planned kidnap thrusts Lisa into the role of reluctant rescuer alongside Michael, a famous TV psychic. Together they set out to find a missing girl and walk straight into mortal danger.
