Sam leaps into the body of Dr. Timothy Mintz, a parapsychologist who who is working with Troin Claridge who is trying to contact her husband, who died three years ago. Mintz is attracted to the woman and Sam knows one thing - if he can't convince her that there is no ghost, she too will drown in the small lake behind her house just as her husband did. Troin's brother, Jimmy Giovanni, is convinced that Mintz is exploiting her and their very odd housekeeper, Priscilla Stoltz, is nothing short of creepy. Sam however is convinced that there is a very earthly explanation to the voices Troin has been hearing. Written by garykmcd
