    A small number of cameras have the ability to capture ghosts on film. This gift comes at a steep price; the ghosts are resentful and hungry, and the cameras offer them a rare chance to reach their favourite prey... humans. Jenine doesn't know any of this when she finds an abandoned Polaroid camera in a lighthouse. At first she assumes the ghostly shapes in the photos are a glitch or a prank - but then the spirits begin to hunt her down, and she's forced into a deadly race to free herself from the camera's curse.

    not really

    I was expecting a more mythological bent to this story.To me it was WAY too much action/adventure than a storyline that flowed.I found myself just waiting for the drama to simmer so we could get back to the story.
    Nigel Patterson was a good narrator for this book.His voices for the characters were perfect.

    Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you - the choice is yours. They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn't know - your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace. Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue - she hasn't discovered it yet. Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?

    Maggie Phillips hasn't had it easy. As the wife of retired Navy SEAL, and the adoptive mother of two little hellions, Maggie is constantly looking for ways to improve her family's financial situation. She accepts a cleaning position for her new neighbors (who redefine the term eccentric), never imagining she will end up as the sole alibi for a man with a fascination for medieval torture devices when he is brought up on murder charges.
