Very enjoyable read. This was a new author to me and I throughly enjoyed it. Good mystery read with just enough of a twist to keep your attention. It was a hard book to put down, in fact I read it through in one sitting finishing in the wee hours of the morning. :)

Young women are answering their phones only to hear the sounds of a thunderstorm and chimes. Then the women promptly drop the phone and commit suicide by various means. FBI Agent Sullivan Dean has an old school photo of seven schoolgirls in a gifted class. Six of them are already dead. He needs to find Virginia Shapiro before she becomes the next victim. Ginny has the same photo and she isn't answering her phone. She is hiding in hopes that the killer can't find her.

Dinah McCall (aka Sharon Sala) is a hit and miss author for me. This book falls somewhere in the middle. The idea of someone planting post-hypnotic suggestions in children definitely kept my interest. And, I liked that the heroine was pro-active and wasn't waiting around for someone to save her. But somewhere along the way the book lost steam for me and I wasn't surprised by the twist at the end. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

Ginny Shapiro stares at the photograph of seven smiling schoolgirls from the exclusive Montgomery Acadamy. Six of them are dead. She is the only one still alive.
The phone rings. Ginny gets in her car and speeds away. Anywhere. Fast.

FBI agent Sullivan Dean has the photo, too - as well as information that came too late to save the others. Tracking Ginny down to an isolated cabin in Mississippi, he's hell-bent on stopping her from becoming the final victim. What happened to those girls twenty years ago? The answer is locked deep in Ginny's memory; the key is somewhere in the dangerous world of mind control, where a sound, a word, a voice, can trigger death. For Ginny and Sully, the world is closing in -- and passion between them is exploding. But time is running out, and death is within arm's reach . . . everytime the phone rings.

In the space of a few weeks, six of Ginny Shapiro's grade-school friends have committed suicide even Sister Mary Theresa, who wrote to tell her of the deaths and knew that killing herself was a mortal sin. Having learned that a phone call somehow triggers these so-called suicides, Ginny is running for her life, with FBI agent Sullivan Dean a friend of Sister Mary's brother in hot pursuit, determined to save her. Intense, fast-paced, and cleverly crafted, this engrossing tale deals with some of the darker aspects of hypnosis and human nature and will appeal to those who like their contemporary romances on the chilling side.
LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW

"Inside the last room on the left, seven little girls sat quietly watching..for the teacher to begin.

They didn't hear the rain peppering against the windows or see the lightning as it began to flash. Their eyes were on the teacher, their minds focused on the sound of his voice.

That night, long after the children had gone home, the storm still raged. Just before midnight, a great shaft of lightning came down from the sky, shattering wood and shingles alike as it pierced teh roof of the school. Before anyone noticed, the school was completely engulfed in flames. By morning there was nothing left...

The seven who'd been chosen for the gifted class were mainstreamed into first grade classes in three different districts, and life went on. They learned. They grew. And every night their parents put them to bed, unaware of the time bomb that ticked in their heads."

This was really good, an original, unusual mystery. Even those who don't like romances (guilty) will enjoy the unique story. Women are dying horribly- all women who have taken this gifted class. A courageous nun puts it all together. And soon there is only one woman left. Ginny Shapiro knows she is in terrible danger, but does not know where the danger is coming from. Agent Sullivan Dean tries to protect her from this mysterious danger, knowing only that each victim recieved a phone call shortly before she died.
