Mandy, a novice nurse at Freeport hospital, took the elevator down to get supplies for her area. It only took a moment to go from four down to three. The elevator doors opened to a dimly lit floor. She walked out and glanced to her right. The empty nurses station was just down the hall before the double doors that she assumed led to the now empty rooms. There were a few boxes on the counter that surrounded the station, but other than those, the station was empty. She turned to the left and saw the closed door with the word "Supplies" stenciled on it. Hurrying over to the doors, she pulled out the key and inserted it into the lock. A light switch was conveniently located right inside the door and Mandy switched it on. Bright light flooded the interior of the supply room. Metal shelves lined up in narrow aisles throughout the room. She easily located the sheets and also found a plastic tub she could use to carry them upstairs. She piled the sheets into the tub, carried them out of the room, then turned off the light and then locked the door. Hefting the tub back into her arms, she turned around and was surprised to see a little girl standing next to the empty nurses station. Mandy guessed the little girl was about eight years old. She had a hospital gown on and her hair was styled in two braids that hung on either side of her head. She must have wandered away from the Pediatric Ward on the second floor. "Hey sweetheart," she said. "I'm Mandy. Are you lost?" The girl stared at the nurse for a long moment, but didn't answer. "Come on, I can bring you back to your room," Mandy coaxed, not wanting to frighten the child. The child didn't respond. Mandy put the tub down, looked back up and the child was gone. Shaking her head in surprise, Mandy slowly stepped forward, her heart thumping in her chest. The little girl must have dashed behind the counter, that had to be where she was. "Little girl," she called. "Where are you?" She peeked behind the nurses station expecting to find the child hiding, but no one was there. All of the cabinets and desks that used to be behind the counter were gone, so just the shell of the counter stood around her. There was nowhere to hide. Nowhere to go. A chill ran up Mandy's spine. She backed away from the station, her mouth dry and her heart pounding. She grabbed the tub of sheets and dashed to the elevator, beating on the button in desperation. Not daring to look over her shoulder at the wing behind her. Finally, the elevator doors opened, and she nearly tripped getting in, she was so eager to leave the floor. She pressed the fourth-floor button and gasped with relief when the doors opened into the bright floor. Mary and Bradley help solve the mystery that is keeping the ghosts of thirteen children stranded in an unused section of the hospital. And, with Mikey arrival imminent, they prepare for other changes in the Alden household.

Detective Sean O'Reilly is called in to interrogate a young boy who is the only witness to a massacre during a gang war. The child's story is too far-fetched for most of the Chicago Police Force to believe - claims of an army of other-worldly creatures who attacked and dismembered the rival gangs. But Sean O'Reilly believes him, because he's seen them himself. An encounter he had as a boy in a dark forest in Ireland did not just given him nightmares, but changed his entire life.

You're naked,” Mary said, sliding a stool over to get away from the ghost sitting next to her.The ghost looked casually down at his fleshy and very naked body and nodded, “So it would seem I am,” he said. Mary reached across the bar, grabbed a folded linen napkin and slid it towards him. “Well, at least cover yourself,” she said. “This is a public place.”“No one has ever noticed me before,” he said. “I've sat here at this bar in my altogether for about ten years.”“Ten years?

"Please help me," she cried desperately, tears filling her eyes. "I'm so cold." Elaine Wright has been called in to help solve a case of disappearing coeds from the college in Baraboo, Wisconsin.

Ruth McCredie was about in the middle of the field, she decided. This would be a good place to get a few more samples. She looked back at the row she was standing in and saw four ears laying in the dirt. "Perfect," she said, reaching back for another plastic bag. "These will be great." Hurrying down the row towards the ears, she was surprised to hear a crack in the distance. Before she could react, she felt the blow of the bullet entering her body. She stared, wide-eyed, at the blood blossoming across her sweatshirt. "I've been..." she began, more bewildered than afraid, but then her knees gave out and she fell to the ground. The soft earth absorbed the impact from the fall, but a sharp stalk scraped her face. She gasped in pain, but the gasp gave way to choking as her life ebbed away, the rich, brown soil absorbing her blood. A bullet shot rings out on the night of the Super Moon and a promising college student is killed. Was it an accident, or did her research into false claims by a bio-tech, agricultural company garner her too much attention? The wrong kind of attention. Mary and Bradley have to find out or Ruth McCredie will never rest.
