Teenager Murray Keifer just doesn't fit in at school. And it doesn't help that his mother is too busy entertaining male friends to be involved in his life. His only friends are "Dearly" and "Beloved": dead people buried in the local cemetery. That's right, Murray talks to the dead. But Murray's peaceful and unusual world is torn asunder when he hears the voice of missing teen Nikki Parker, buried in someone else's grave.

Teenager Murray Keifer just doesn't fit in at school. And it doesn't help that his mother is too busy entertaining male friends to be involved in his life. His only friends are "Dearly" and "Beloved": dead people buried in the local cemetery. That's right, Murray talks to the dead.

But Murray's peaceful and unusual world is torn asunder when he hears the voice of missing teen Nikki Parker, buried in someone else's grave. Pearl, the daughter of the groundskeeper and Murray's one living friend, believes in his special gift and is determined to give Nikki justice. Meanwhile, Deputy Roman Gates draws closer to solving the mystery behind Nikki's disappearance.

What the Critics Say

"Readers will like the edginess and be intrigued by the extrasensory elements, as well as the darker turns the mystery takes. This is something different." (Booklist)

    "Not bad..."

    Not bad... but not exactly a classic either. A few of the characters are painted too thinly, and it felt like another chapter or two was really needed to wrap things up. Worst of all, there are so many long pauses that I was constantly wondering if my iPod had locked up or something.

    However, the story does hold your attention and most of the characters are pretty compelling. It has the feeling of a first novel by an author who will later do great things.
