Publisher's Summary

The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found. Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally, she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.

“First-time novelist Derting has written a suspenseful mystery and sensual love story that will captivate readers who enjoy authentic high-school settings, snappy dialogue, sweet romance, and heart–stopping drama. A real page–turner, this will have readers checking behind themselves and refusing to go anywhere alone.” (Booklist)

    "Interesting Idea but....."

    The author came up with a good premise but ruined it with teen romance. Another author making it seem that teen sex is normal and just a choice. Wasn't needed for the story and actually detracts from the whole. The narrator didn't help.

    "Just awful! Pre-teen bodice clutcher."

    Don't waste a credit or your time on this awful attempt at copying what Charlaine Harris has already done so well. If the idea of locating dead bodies interests you, check out Ms. Harris' Harper Connelly stories, but don't bother with this mess of a book.

    "Not all all believable and horrible narration"

    I would really like to give this book 1 1/2 stars. The plot, by itself, could have made for a fantastic book. However, there was just too much suspension of disbelief required to take this book seriously and I couldn't do it. With a boyfriend, family members, and FBI associate to help her, Violet always decided to go on murder mystery adventures by herself. It wasn't possible to believe this. Too bad - I really liked the first novel.

    Narration: Again, this book has horrible narration. The narrator doesn't know how to differentiate voices nor make realistic male voice. In addition to all the voices sounding the same, the male voices sounded like oafs. Please use a different narrator for the third novel.
