Description

When she was 15, Harper Connelly was struck by a bolt of lightning, which left her with a spiderweb of red over her body, headaches, and episodes of weakness. Sometimes her right hand shakes. And she can find dead people.

It's taken a while, but at last Harper's pretty happy with her life: she's making a living, using her unique talent to help people, and she's got a lover - her stepbrother Tolliver. That creeps some people out, but though they grew up together, and got each other through the real bad times - their parents' drug-use, the abuse, the disappearance of Harper's elder sister Cameron - they're not blood relatives.

Then Tolliver's dad arrives on the scene, seeking forgiveness for the sins of their youth, and the police get a tip-off that after all these years, Cameron's been spotted in a mall. With all this going on Harper realises life is getting a little complicated, but she doesn't expect those complications to include Tolliver getting shot, or watching a cop die taking a bullet for her.

Harper can find dead people, but now it's clear someone wants her dead ...

Review quote

From the bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels comes a compelling tale of love and betrayal.
When she was 15, Harper Connelly was struck by lightning. It left her with headaches and episodes of muscle weakness. Sometimes her right hand shakes.
And she can find dead people.
It's taken a few years, but Harper's made a success of her life. She's making a living, using her talent to help people, and she's got a boyfriend - her stepbrother Tolliver. Everything seems to be on track . . . and then Tolliver's father appears, seeking forgiveness, and the police receive news that Harper's sister Cameron, missing for so many years, has been spotted. So Harper's life is becoming a little complicated, but she never expected these complications would include Tolliver being shot, or seeing a policeman die taking a bullet for her.
Harper can find dead bodies; now it's clear someone wants her to become one . . .
'A series that just might surpass all her others in popularity' Booklist
'The suspense is dark, and the paranormal elements creepy . . . Paranormal mystery at its very best!'
