Dead Connection

by Charlie Price

Is Murray psychic? He talks to the dead and comforts them in their lonely graves, even as they provide solace for him—they are his best friends. When he hears a new voice in the cemetery, he’s sure it’s Nikki, the cheerleader who has been missing for months. But who will believe him? He’s a loser. Can he even believe in himself? Along comes Pearl, daughter of the cemetery caretaker, who befriends Murray and tries to enter his world. Together they may prove the astonishing possibility that Nikki is closer than anyone thinks.
