Dana Landgrave is a normal high school student, except for her dreams. She dreams of people long agopeople who are scared, happy, laughing, sad, and people who are murdered. These repeated disturbing images compel her to see Dr. Sprague, who believes they aren't dreams at all, but memories from her past lives. Suddenly Dana is seeing similarities between figures in her every day life and the people from her past. Familiar objects, too, come into her hands, so what if souls of centuries ago also turn up? Dana realizes that if that's true, her murderer from 400 years ago might be involved in her current life. Now she just has to uncover who it is before another deadly crime is committed.

Like Roderick Townley's Sylvie Cycle, "The Red Thread" was a gripping and really interesting story, with a unique mystery because of the what-exactly-is-going-on plot entwined with the whodunit one. It was eerie and haunting; not in the way that makes you jump at strange noises or get chills up your back, but in one that makes you think.
