In their third book (following We Are Not Forgotten and We Do Not Die ), the trio of psychic Anderson; Martin, his co-host on the cable show Psychic Channels ; and Dreamgirl coauthor Romanowski, focus on Anderson's alleged conversations with children who have died. Grieving parents sought out Anderson, and in lengthy question-and-answer interviews sandwiched between reconstructions of the families' lives and their thoughts after the psychic's readings, Anderson pieces together details of the children's lives; deaths; current existences "on the other side"; the relatives, friends and pets there with them; and their comforting words to their parents, absolving them of guilt and reassuring them of their love. All but two conversations are based, "on videotape, on audiotape, or in notes Joel took while witnessing the reading" (though which are which is not noted). Some parents in similar need of comfort will be convinced when Anderson immediately hits on a dead child's name. Skeptics, however, will find the similarity of opening gamuts (usually "A male close to you passed") and his backpedaling as he searches for the right answer less convincing ("he's telling me there's health involved, it's accidental, and it's very sudden. He showed me a car accident. But he says 'It's not a car accident.' . . . And then he started talking about his health. I thought he was trying to tell me he didn't pass from a health problem").
