Narrated by Robert Petkoff.

Reviews & Summaries
The book's best parts are the eerie spectres that begin appearing to Eric amidst his pseudo-detective work. The questions about the contents of Pluto water are compelling, while the town's dark past begin to come alive in unexpected ways.
Koryta's writing falters in his stock characters, the bad guy is cookie cut and only vaguely menacing, the odd old woman is hazily defined, and the town, perhaps the central character of all, isn't clearly described at times.
It's a fun dip into the supernatural mystery genre that occasionally lags but mostly crackles with surprises.
