Killing Imaginary Friends
An Oliver Frampton Mystery
What does a boy do when his imaginary friends never die?
Olly Frampton fights back his parting tears. It’s all his fault. He stares at his mother’s tear-streaked face in the rearview mirror, terrified she will careen off the mountain in the storm. Suddenly, she breaks when police lights glare off the windshield. An officer in a yellow slicker waves them past an overturned car. She gasps.
Olly presses his nose against the window. A small boy with unblinking eyes clutches his teddy in the rain before disappearing beneath a white sheet. Olly’s fear turns to profound sadness for the poor little guy, dying all alone on the road in the rain. A small voice makes Olly’s head spin and his eyes bulge. The boy smiles from the seat beside him. Was this his imagination?
Killing Imaginary Friends is Book One of the Oliver Frampton Mystery Series. If you like suspenseful, emotional, coming-of-age angst, you’ll love Ardelle Holden’s gripping story of young Olly’s two imaginary friends who frustrate and torment him until at twenty, he discovers what really happened when he was eight, but after all these years, the trail is bone cold.
