I'm not so different from most people.
Like everyone else, I have life goals.
Goal #1: Become a real girl instead of this invisible ghost thing I currently am.
Goal #2: Convince the four men I've been haunting for the past five years to pick me to be their new toy after goal one is complete.

His British cabin-mate on the ship who knows German helps him learn English. He meets some of his fellow passengers, including a group of Irish refugees escaping the potato famine.

"A taut, suspenseful thriller." --Kirkus Reviews
In Boston an assailant immobilizes a sleep-deprived young mother, blinds her with a black hood, and steals her infant son. When a second abduction occurs in an identical fashion, the media dubs this terrifying perpetrator "The Piper" after the Pied Piper of Northern European folk legend.
Stumped by these mysterious kidnappings -- with no witnesses, no leads, no ransom, and no sign of the missing babies -- local authorities reach out to Special Agent Jackson Byrne and his FBI team specializing in child abduction. As Jack becomes embroiled in the child abduction case, he tries to prepare himself and his anxiety-riddled family for the trial of his most sensationalized criminal ever, the Playground Predator.
Through themes of loss and grief, retribution and repentance, The Piper follows both the Playground Predator trial and the Piper's infant abductions as each story fervently races to its unforgettable climax.

When my boyfriend threw me down a flight of stairs, I knew there was only one place left to go -- far, far away. I packed up my car and left everything I'd known for the nearly twenty-two years I've been alive. One hundred and fifty miles of highway separated me from the life I grew up with and the one I needed to find.
The same day I was offered a job in my new city, I met Elias. He was an enigma. A mystery. One that I wanted to uncover. One I didn't know if I could trust.
He pulled me in with adventure and the melodies of his guitar, but his secrets held me at a distance. He couldn't tell me about what he did for a living, or why he took phone calls in a different room.
Then my ex returned. Travis wove a sordid tale of danger; that he was only there to keep me safe from Elias.
I never expected truth to be nestled in his lies.
So, I've checked off some life goals and added a few new ones to my list.
Goal #5: Get out of hell's belly without letting my ungrateful charges die.
Goal #6: Get a new name that's more badass.
Goal #7: Stop wasting my breath on lectures and start annoying the quad hell squad every time they annoy me. Fight fire with fire. Ha! Another hell pun.
Goal 8: Find out who the hell killed me.
I'll add more. I don't want to overwhelm myself before I even finish checking off my old goals. But seriously, I really do need a more badass name, considering how much I have to keep saving my damsels in distress.
I probably shouldn't call them damsels, since they're a little murderous and all.
Maybe I should add seeing a hell-certified psychologist to my list of goals.
