Dinah, Vincent, Edaniel and Edrear continue to release the spirits in the mausoleum. One spirit turns out to have been a girl Dinah went to school with. She was bullied before killing herself. All she wants is to be loved and she is making herself into the perfect woman with parts form other girls. Now she wants Dinah's eyes to complete her transformation.

Another spirit causes them to appear on a boat at sea in the middle of a hurricane. They need to see the boat safely into the harbour to save the passengers. A random chapter has Dinah and Vincent watching Edrear deal with ghosts and a car crash incident reminds Dinah of the night her parents died and she survived. Vincent has his own quest, he is trying to find out more about the history of the town by doing research in the local library. His search leads him to be shown a secret room and uncovers more about the mysterious Addie Clark.

There seems to be following them in the shadows and this installment ends on a major cliff hanger involving Vincent. I am very much looking forward to the fifth installment due out in July. Dinah is really growing on me as a character, she is relying on herself much more to solve puzzles and is much more confident.
