Jake Marshall is convinced that the old house he lives in is haunted. While he tries to avoid the ghost, the town bullies discover him. With his head under the covers at night and his legs on the run during the day, he still finds time to harass teachers, annoy his siblings, and discover a secret room. But twelve-year-old Jake has more to worry about than a couple of mean kids and a man he can’t see. What’s the truth about his parents’ divorce and how the Marshalls got haunted before they ever moved into Harold’s house? Based on a real town, a real house, a real family, and maybe a real ghost, all names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Charles Harper White, M.D. begins his career as an idealistic internist but soon finds his ethics and morals challenged by his patient family the Wellbornes and by medical colleagues lacking honesty, integrity, and humanity.
The Wellbornes, riddled with medical and psychological complexity, begin to rule White’s life and strain his character.
Agnes Wellborne, in the ER and almost brain dead, is about to be snatched by the self-affected, patient-grabbing ICU director, Dr. Arnold Briteman, M.D., and, against her wishes and White’s orders, put on
unneeded and unwanted life support.
If Briteman succeeds, White, in order to keep Agnes from a slow and painful death and to keep his promise to Agnes that she would die with dignity if he had anything to say or do about it, will need to consider acts contrary to his sworn medical oaths.
Agnes’ seriously ill, but undiagnosed, sister Marion is either poisoning herself or, as Marion insists, the victim of her attorney brother Harris’ deadly determination to survive Agnes and Marion and win the inheritance left by the family patriarch to the last survivor of the three siblings.
Read as White and his sleuthing attorney wife, Heather, turn detective to solve the mystery of who and what are killing Marion.
