Sudden death, unexplained supernatural events, and interactions with ghosts come together in a hospital mystery that focuses on the paranormal in Lewiston, Maine. Having a little fun with his readers, Stephen King has created a fictional character who acts as both author and narrator of this audiobook. Druse investigates ghost sightings, encounters noncorporeal beings, and works with doctors who seek to solve the mystery of her ability to communicate with the dead. Contrary to what the audiobook cover states, an unnamed narrator reads Druse's first-person account competently and fluently as she describes her personal involvement in the events at her local hospital. An introductory letter to Stephen King creates the tie-in to the TV series "Kingdom Hospital." Druse's investigation is incomplete, encouraging listeners to await the next installment of her adventures. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
