Relentless victims´ rights advocates, Jess Kimball and Jack Reacher, both deliver justice when the legal system fails. Reacher waits until trouble finds him and then he does whatever it takes. But Jess pursues legal justice and draws a line she will not cross. How can she win against killers who refuse to follow the rules? Three years ago, beloved Florida Governor, Helen Sullivan, had her world shattered when her only son died in a senseless car crash, that killed both himself and his best friend. Helen quickly discovered that Eric’s crash was no accident, and she lured the killer to her son’s funeral to be caught. When the shooting ceased in the small country church, Helen believed her nightmare was over. Instead, she’d unwittingly escalated her duel with a cunning and patient assassin. Now, investigative journalist Jess Kimball is driven to find the horrifying truth. Is the Central Florida Child Killer guilty? Or is the real killer still out there? Helen and Jess together face the determined killer in a pitched battle of wit and nerve, while Helen´s husband struggles to live. Who will survive? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Hancock.

Ever since her first ghostly sighting, Abby Kimball has been trying to unravel the mystery of her newly discovered ability. So when she sees the apparition of a Revolutionary War soldier in the middle of the town green - just days before the annual Patriot´s Day celebration, no less - she´s determined to figure out her connection to the man. The ethereal soldier is not the only mystery in Abby´s life. She´s also trying to sort out her connection to Ned Newhall, the man who shares her ability and is playing a more serious romantic role in her life every day. But with plans for the celebration ramping up and her job becoming more chaotic by the minute, Abby´s finding it hard to catch her breath, much less come to grips with all the new turns her life has taken.

Still looking for answers to explain her uncanny ability to see her dead ancestors, Abby shifts her focus to spiritualists, seers, and psychics of all kind. Meeting them with an open mind - and a healthy dose of skepticism - she wants to know if any of them genuinely share her strange experiences or if they´re simply conning gullible people. When she ventures into a series of ´´readings´´ given by area psychics, she makes a startling connection that defies even her wildest expectations. Unsure of what to make of the encounter, Abby turns to her boyfriend, Ned, and the two enlist the help of a scientist friend with equipment that can map the mind. Hoping to pinpoint where the source of their ability lies, they agree to be subjects in a one-of-a-kind experiment. But when Abby is strapped into the machine, the readings - and their implications - are more shocking than either of them could have anticipated. Faced with the new, improbable connection and the possibility that the experiment has changed her life irrevocably, Abby will be forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about her ability - and herself - and answer the daunting question of what she wants next. 1.

Looking to take a break from busy home renovations, Abby and boyfriend Ned Newhall jump at the chance to vacation on Cape Cod. Not only do they plan to get away from the dust and grime, but since Abby has no known ancestors in the area, the trip promises to be free of the unsettling ghostly appearances that have darkened her recent days. Dreams of a relaxing vacation are soon dashed, however, when a storm blows in and brings with it a scene from the past more disturbing than any Abby has ever experienced. The long-dead woman who appears to Abby is someone she´s met before, but this time her presence defies any explanation at all. Determined to unravel the mystery of the woman´s recurring appearances, Abby follows a trail of family history and upheaval that spans generations and may yield the biggest revelation of all, not just about Abby´s ancestors but about her living relatives as well. 1.

Abby Kimball has just moved to New England with her boyfriend and is trying to settle in, but the experience is proving to be quite unsettling, to say the least. While on a tour of local historic homes, Abby witnesses a family scene that leaves her gasping for breath - because the family has been dead for nearly a century. Another haunting episode follows, and another, until it seems to Abby that everything she touches is drawing her in, calling to her from the past. Abby would doubt her sanity if it weren´t for Ned Newhall, the kind and knowledgeable guide on that disturbing house tour. Rather than telling her she´s hallucinating, Ned takes an interest in Abby´s strange encounters and encourages her to figure out what´s going on, starting with investigating the story of the family she saw and exploring her own past. But as Abby begins to piece together a history that´s as moving as it is shocking and unravels a long-ago mystery that nearly tore her family apart, she also begins to suspect that Ned´s got secrets of his own and that his interest may be driven as much by a taste for romance as by a love for history. 1.
