"Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to Marble Waves. My name is Regina Marble, and you're listening to Fright Radio. If you're a vampire, a werewolf, a shapeshifter or a witch, please register on our website. If you're a ghost, you're very welcome to haunt it instead."
On the hill behind the university, Amy sits in her new car, listening to her friend's radio programme. With her eyes set on the full moon, she lights a cigarette. In thirty minutes, she will no longer be human.
Meanwhile, Amy's brother, Jo has just said goodnight to his boyfriend and he's rushing back to his room to catch the show. As he reaches the door, a whisper startles him. It's a voice calling his name... and it belongs to his best friend, who killed himself a year ago.
As morning slowly dawns across the small southeastern town, a handwritten note arrives at someone's house: "I hope you burn in hell for what you did to me."
And then a murder changes everything...
