SWG member Helen Power’s genre-bending supernatural mystery/thriller The Ghosts of Thorwald Place has won gold in the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards for Best New Voice: Fiction.


Trust No One. Especially your neighbors.
Rachel Drake is on the run from the man who killed her husband. She never leaves the safety of her doorman building, until one night a phone call sends her running. Before she can escape, she is murdered in the elevator. But her story doesn’t end there.


Trapped in the afterlife and tethered to her death spot, Rachel's reach is tied to the adjacent apartments. As she rides the elevator up and down, she is compelled to spend eternity observing her neighbors. An aging trophy wife whose husband strays. A surgeon guarding a locked room. A TV medium who may be a fraud. An ordinary man with a mysterious hobby.


Every one of them has a dark secret. And any one of them could be her killer.
