The Egyptian god of death lurks in neighborhood streets. The replica of a sphinx comes to life and takes vengeance on a predator of street kids. An ethereal presence types messages on a home computer screen. These are among the spirits that animate the stories in City of the Dead.

Their spine-tingling tales lead to the hazy middle ground between reality and imagination, shadow and light, science and superstition. They explore a kind of twilight zone of people and events that defy explanation. They scratch at the surface of fear and challenge preconceptions about what is real. They are Rod Serling's response to the 21st century, and they are guaranteed to take you to edge of fear and back.

Sharon Stewart's previous novels for young readers include The Minstrel Boy, The Dark Tower, Spider's Web and My Anastasia.
