Then Josh’s family gets a free AOL CD in the mail and his mom makes him take it to Emma to install on her new computer.

Everyone wonders what their destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.

Alice receives an e-mail from her dead sister and assumes it’s just a sick practical joke.

But questions nag at Alice – like why is Soul Beach inhabited only by the young, the beautiful and the dead? Who really murdered her sister? And the most pressing question: could Alice be next?
