Publisher Description

Harper Connelly had a lucky escape when she was hit by lightning: she didn't die. But sometimes she wishes she had died, because the lightning strike left her with an unusual talent: she can find dead people - and that's not always comfortable. Everyone wants to know how she does it: it's a little like hearing a bee droning inside her head, or maybe the pop of a Geiger counter, a persistent, irregular noise that increases in strength as she gets closer. It's almost electric: a buzzing all through her body, and the fresher the corpse, the more intense the buzz.

Harper and her brother Tolliver make their living from finding the dead, for desperate parents, worried friends ... and police departments who have nowhere else to look. They may not believe in her abilities, but sometimes the proof is just too much for even the most sceptical of police chiefs to deny.

But it's not always easy for someone like Harper, for the dead *want* to be found - and too often, finding the body doesn't bring closure; it opens a whole new can of worms.

Interesting read

After reading the sookie stackhouse novels I was left wanting more. Thought I would give this book a try and was pleasantly surprised. Interesting idea can't wait to read the next one ;)

Amazing read

I love the True Blood books & thought I would read this series. From the blurb I didn't think I would like them but I couldn't put them down! Another great set from Charlaine and have recommended them to my friends.

Great supernatural novel

I bought the "grave" novels having read Harris' True Blood series. I really enjoyed the book. It can be slow in parts but a good read nonetheless. I really liked Harper and Tolliver, although Harper's neediness and lack of confidence grates a bit as the book goes on. Not as good as the True Blood series but worth reading.
