Desmond Linc thinks turning sixteen sucks. Usually sixteen means parties (trouble), cars (terrifying) and girls (umm, no). To Des, sixteen means the third anniversary of his brother’s death and the car accident that damaged his brain and left a dead space the doctors couldn’t explain.

When his best friend insists they attend the first big party of the summer to mark the occasion, he grudgingly obliges. Mistake. Des wakes the next morning with a black hole in his memory the size of an eighteen-wheeler, snuggled up to the most popular girl in school. Totally cool if he was straight and she wasn’t dead—brutally murdered.

There’s a depraved monster in town preying on teenagers and Des is an unwilling spectator. The space in his brain isn’t dead anymore. It’s a doorway to the afterlife, and the dead come telling secrets and lies and wielding accusations like scythes.

With escalating hallucinations and bodies piling up, Des can’t tell if his visions are really a connection to the dead or manifestations of his own guilt. The dead seek vengeance and they’ve chosen Des as their vessel and champion. Armed with a questionable team of ghostbusters, Desmond must find a way to quiet the increasingly volatile ghosts in his head and uncover a killer before another classmate dies.
