Published by OpenRoadMedia
A troubled ghost begs the new girl in town to help him rest in peace.

Nobody knows exactly what happened the night Nguyen Trang drove off the cliff. When Kirsten Wilkes moves to Port Lincoln, she hears all kinds of rumors about the strange Vietnamese boy’s death. Was it suicide? An accident? Was there anybody else in the car? Even though her family has just moved into Nguyen’s new house, Kirsten doesn’t have time for rumors. She’s too busy trying to make it through driver’s ed alive.

Kirsten is one of the worst drivers Port Lincoln has ever seen. The only thing that makes the class bearable is Rob Maxson and his dreamy green eyes. But when Nguyen’s ghost appears in Kirsten’s bedroom, begging her to bring his murderers to justice, she begins to fear that driver’s ed isn’t the only thing that could get her killed.

 PrologueNguyen
HOT.
 She is hot.
 
 He cannot stop thinking about her.
 
 He lifts his fingers from his computer, but the rain keeps ontapping outside his window.
 
Time to go.
 
 He looks up at the photo again. It’s on his wall, just below the Lamborghini poster and to the right of the Ferrari shot.
 
 She’s in profile. Close up. Her smile is amazing. He wants that smile. All for himself. Now. Before he leaves.
 
 He closes his eyes and concentrates. The rumbling sound begins.
 Move.
DRIVEER’S DEADPeter Lerangis
 
 
 It hasn’t happened. He knows it. Sweat tickles his forehead. His teeth grind together.
 Move NOW!
 He is vibrating. He is going to pass out.
 
 Dumb idea. Rob is waiting for him in the rain. He has to go.
 
 He opens his eyes. For a moment he sees nothing. The room isred and black.
 
Then everything clears.
 
 Nguyen looks at the photo again.
 
 He grins. It has worked.
 
Gwen is still smiling. But she looks different.
 
 She has turned.
 
 She is now facing him.
 
 Virgil
“He’s not coming.” Virgil Garth looks up the road. A blockaway, a street lamp is steaming against the cold April drizzle.
 
 No one is going to meet him and Rob on a night like this. Noone in his right mind.
 
 Least of all a guy who’s been invited for a “talk” with Rob Maxson. A talk about going out with the wrong girl.
 
 A shakedown. That’s what they called this in crime novels.
 
This whole idea is crazy.
 
 But Virgil isn’t about to say that. Not to Rob. No way.
 
“He’ll come.” Rob leans against the car. As he hunches hisshoulders, his face sinks into his black leather jacket collar. He lifts acigarette, his hand cupped over the top, and takes a drag. His fingernails are black with axle grease.
