The Raising, Paperback / softback Book

The Raising Paperback / softback


A sudden death. In Godwin Honors Hall, the walls are draped in black.

The college is in mourning for Nicole Werner, a blonde and beautiful prom queen who died in a car crash last semester.

She was a straight-A student, and a prized member of the Virgin Sisters, the most powerful sorority on campus. A feverish obsession. Nicole's boyfriend Craig was at the wheel that night.

He has no memory of the crash, but he is plagued by guilt.

For as winter sets in and the nights darken, Nicole's death dominates college life.

Candlelit vigils and fetishistic rituals become nightly events -and then the hauntings begin. A flicker of suspicion. Craig's roommate, Perry, doesn't believe in ghosts.

A no-nonsense type who always thought Nicole was as manipulative as she was charming, he refuses to be swept up by the hysteria.

But when he and his fellow sceptics join forces, he too sees Nicole's spirit in the crumbling college halls. Something very strange is going on...
