About the Author
Read an Excerpt
I stood there shaking, holding the cross out, keeping it between me and the spooky figure on the gravestone, wondering if it would do any good.
John's voice sounded strained. "Uh, do you live around here?"
Boy, could he come up with stupid questions sometimes!
"Yep." The man's body seemed to relax a bit. He pulled at his earlobe.
More silence. It's hard to think of something to say when you're in a forbidden graveyard at midnight and you're standing across from an old, half-naked man you think might be a ghost. He didn't look cold, but I was freezing.
John and Noah were shivering like that's been tobogganing in their underwear for the last two hours. And the man had that sort of glow that he'd had two nights ago. I could tell now that it wasn't from the moonlight.
"Would you mind telling us your name?" Noah asked politely.
"Nope. I'm Chief Copegog. How 'bout you?"
I looked at the gravestone. Behind the man's leather leggings I could make out the part of the name Copegog carved into the marble. Was he the ghost of the guy buried there?

What part did you consider the most suspenseful?The part where I found the most suspenseful was when suddenly Karen woke up and hear footsteps coming towards her door "Thud Thud Thud", it can't be her brother, he was already sleeping, she can even hear him snoring. Can it be her parents? No, they were heavy sleepers, they never wake up in the middle of the night. Then "Bang Bang Bang", her door shook in it's frame. Then Bang Bang Bang again, louder this time. Someone was real mad with her; then suddenly, the room came cold....FREEZING COLD! How can it be this cold?!? It's the middle of summer! 25 degrees, how could it be "freezing"?!?...Could it be...a ghost??
