A cold case written with a paceand a suspense as brilliant as a tv series. An excellent thrilling story filled with mystery, investigation and a bit of horror.
Carolina has weird feelings anytime she accompanies her grandmother to the graveyard for paying a visit to her grandfather. She feels like hearing the voices of dead children, actually she feels their touch on her skin. When her mom decides to move, she opt for a beautiful house, at number 13, in a suburban area, in the back of the old and abandoned graveyard. In the new school Carolina makes friends with Ruth and Eddie, a lonely guy obsessed with aliens and horror stories. Meanwhile, in the night, her dreams are increasingly unsettling: she dreams more and more unknown kids claiming from her something that she doesn’t understand. If they wouldn’t be dreams but messages from the underworld? You just have to poke around the old graveyard, together with by Eddie, and once again the weird feelings reappear. Also when the family moves to a smaller town this situation doesn’t change. Weird phenomena and the disturbing encounter with a man confirm that Carolina is gifted with the ability to feel the invisible, especially the S.O.S. messages sent by three girls missing many years ago. Carolina starts her investigation from the archives of the local newspaper that reports the assumption of a serial killer. Keeping on investigating Carolina bumps into the horrible truth and catches the culprit.
By an eclectic author a noir full of twists and turns.
Reading this thriller gives the feeling to be thrown into a story borderline between reality and supernatural where the appearances are very different from what they look like.
