From the opening of Ghost Hunters: Spirit Fire (Book 3 in the Ghost Hunters series) by Susan McCauley
The remains of wood and stone poked through ash and broken glass like charred bones. They were bones, in a way—the building’s bones. I sighed and took in a deep breath of smoke-tinged air. At least the coroner had taken away the victims. I didn’t want to see them. Seeing their ghosts could be scary enough.
I walked over a scorched beam that had fallen from the ceiling, leaving a gaping hole open to the sky, letting the autumn sunlight illuminate the building’s steel ribs. Tattered bits of a singed paper skeleton dangled loosely from a door, hanging lopsided on its hinge. Halloween was only a few days away.
“The fire marshal hasn’t been able to determine the cause of the fire yet, but we’re glad it didn’t reach the Cablido,” said Frank Martinez, my mentor. “That museum is filled with artifacts.” Frank was not only my teacher, but he was also a famous psychic investigator and a retired officer from the head branch of the Office of Psychic Investigation (OPI) in Washington, D.C. If it hadn’t been for Frank, I would have been sent off to some boarding school for psychic kids, which would have been super hard—especially since I was the only kid in history to become psychic at the ripe old age of twelve. I was an anomaly. A freak. An oddball. And the accident that caused it all had turned my life upside down.
“Do you sense anything?” Frank sniffed the air. I knew he was smelling for something more than smoke and mildew.
I closed my eyes and let out a deep breath. I could almost feel the fear and pain of the people who had been trapped inside. Just a few days ago they’d been laughing, talking, alive. Now . . . gone. Accidents happened so quickly, but they could definitely make permanent changes. My heart ached for the people who’d died in the fire. For their fear. For their pain. For their families’ loss. The ache in my chest was real enough, but I didn’t feel any ghosts. Not right now. I couldn’t feel the energy of what people had felt in the past; that part was my imagination. What I could see and feel and hear were actual ghosts; that was part of being psychic.
