anyone can be murdered, no matter how safe you think you are, if you become too complacent.

In the Academy Award-nominated film, “The Sixth Sense”, the ghost of a young boy helps Dr. Malcolm Crowe, played by Bruce Willis, solve the mystery of a series of hauntings. Also utilizing the aid of the undead in an exciting new suspense novel comes Sydney Burns Turnbull’s “The Sixth Floor: Where romance and homicide intersect” (published by iUniverse).

It is on the sixth floor of a condominium building that a woman is murdered in cold blood.

Stuart Browning has recently moved to Huntington, W.Va., for a new job when she receives a disturbing phone call at work. Mrs. Martin in unit 603 has been found dead and the police need to question everyone in the building.

When Stuart meets good looking Chief Detective David Moore, she is drawn down a path of mystery, danger and love as both she and Detective Moore attempt to find the answer to one question, “Who killed Mrs. Martin?”

When asked what the overall theme of her book is, Turnbull responded simply, “anyone can be murdered, no matter how safe you think you are, if you become too complacent.”
