Description-
  • Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.

    Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

    Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

About the Author-
  • Kimberly Derting is the author of The Body Finder, Desires of the Dead, and The Last Echo, which are as much coming-of-age romances as they are paranormal thrillers, as well as the dystopic fantasy The Pledge. She lives in the Pacific Northwest, where the gloomy weather is ideal for writing anything dark and creepy. Her three beautiful (and often mouthy) children serve as an endless source of inspiration and frequently find things they say buried in the pages of their mother's books.

Reviews-
  • Melissa Marr, author of WICKED LOVELY

    "The romance and the mystery in THE BODY FINDER were so intense that I didn't know whether to hold my breath or scream. I did know I wouldn't be getting anything done until I read the whole book."

  • Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of Stargazer

    "You'll be drawn in by the love story--and kept up all night by the suspense."

  • Publishers Weekly

    "Derting's first novel demonstrates unusual skill in weaving together contemporary teenage preoccupations with its paranormal plot twist. ... A strong debut from a promising author."

  • Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

    "...several twists and turns keep the pages flipping."
