When Nick Borja asks his psychic friend, Cassie Valentine, for her opinion on a haunted bed and breakfast, Cassie is left with a slew of questions: Who haunts the mansion, and why? What happened in the small back room that makes it the crux of the haunting? Why has Aaron Jacoby, the caretaker’s young son, become so ill after moving to the premises? Most of all, why is her boyfriend, Michael Penfield, suddenly acting like an alien changeling? Answers won’t be easy to find. Because although both Cassie and Michael are receiving messages, as young Aaron Jacoby says, Dead voices are hard to hear.
