Shari Cooper hadn't planned on dying, but four floors is a long way to fall. Her friends say she fell but Shari knew she had been murdered. Making a vow to herself to find her killer, Shari spies on her friends, and even enters their dreams. She also comes face-to-face with a nightmare from beyond the grave. The Shadow - a thing more horrible than death itself - is the key to Shari's death, and the only thing that can stop her murderer from murdering again.

Christopher Pike was born in New York, but grew up in Los Angeles, where he lives to this day. Prior to becoming a writer he worked in a factory, painted houses and programmed computers.

As well as being a bestselling children's writer, he is also the author of numerous titles for adults.From Publishers Weekly:
Shari is dead, and she knows that she didn't kill herself. So rather than merging with the cosmos as other spirits do, she lingers near the world of the living, determined to find her murderer. Fortunately for Shari, she is not alone in the hereafter. She finds a kindred spirit in Peter, the ghost of a boy she went to high school with. The ethereal duo discover Shari's killer in time to prevent another murder. But their techniques are not typical: rather, they solve the mystery by spying on old friends, attempting to communicate through a Ouija board, entering people's dreams and confronting the darker aspects of their own souls. The novel's central mystery, though somewhat contrived, moves along briskly. Plenty of action combined with several creepy seance scenes keep the pages turning. However, although the novel makes it clear that both Peter and Shari would rather be alive, some may question the prudence of presenting young readers with such a seductive vision of life after death. Ages 12-up.
