Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island


Connecticut’s Northwest Hills conjure up images of winding country roads, 18th century clapboard houses, spectacular fall foliage, and the next Christmas tree for Rockefeller Plaza. Briarwood Cove, a hamlet ensconced deep in these hills, conjures up one additional thing – paranormal activity. Briarwood Cove is lucky to have a resident P.P.I. (Paranormal Private Investigator). Eleven-year-old psychic Ling-Ling Turner seeks the paranormal truth behind all sorts of bizarre occurrences in town. In Mystery of the Rising Island, doom casts a shadow over Briarwood Cove when blasting at a lakefront construction site releases a floating stink pile of muck from the depths of frosty Lake Tahaso. Coyotes arrive in town, and mysterious attacks on animals occur at night. Read more
