Being a ghost isn’t so bad, but being a ghost racing against the clock sucks—especially when, if you lose, you might end up in Hell. The countdown has started and Cin and Jess only have until someone decides to pull the plugs on their life support to decide what to do. Detective Bruce Miller of the Nashville Metro PD is just trying to do his job—and right now, his job is to find a rapist. The problem is, the victim is in the hospital and her doctor won’t let him near her. When a second victim is found raped and murdered, he knows his job is on the line. Then the trail leads him to a child sex ring and implicates the Chief of Police, and he knows he’s in trouble.
Cinthia McRenolds was an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. At least, she was until she and her best friend Jess wind up in a little town called Tremor. Now they’re faced with deciding whether to return to brain-damaged bodies and try to do something good enough to get them into Heaven, reincarnate, or stay in Tremor. Not exactly an easy choice, especially after witnessing the Hell Parade that passes through Tremor on a regular basis.
