The Ghost of Gracie Flynn
Gracie Flynn may be dead, but she’s not gone.
Three university friends are divided by a tragic death. Eighteen years on, chance reunites them. Robyn is still haunted by memories of her best friend Gracie, and Cohen’s heart has never healed. Only Sam seems to have moved on and found success and happiness.
But death rocks their lives again when Sam’s body is found in mysterious circumstances.
And the ghost of Gracie Flynn has a story to tell about the night that changed their lives forever.
The Ghost of Gracie Flynn is an Australian ghost-narrator novel. Three university students drift apart after their friend Gracie dies in mysterious circumstances. They reconnect as adults, but when Sam is found dead, all alone on his boat on the river, some questions need answering. How did he die out there? Was he alone? And what really happened to Gracie all those years ago?
