But helping the local authorities clear cold cases is one thing. Being whisked out of chemistry class by the FBI and flown to the scene of a murder/kidnapping in Minnesota? That s the real deal.
Before the promotion can go to Daisy s head, she s up to her neck in trouble. The spirits are talking, and they re terrified. There s a real living girl in danger.
