Violet and Jay are finally dating, but adjusting to the new relationship is not as easy as Violet anticipated. Especially when she has to split Jay's time and attention with his new best friend, Mike, and Mike's pesky younger sister - who happens to be obsessed with Jay. Meanwhile, when Violet's special abilities lead her to the body of a young boy, her tip to the police puts her on the radar of the FBI. Violet tries to fend off the FBI's questions while maintaining the semblance of a normal life, but somebody's leaving her threatening notes and an echo around Mike's house reinforces that all is not right. Violet is forced to admit that perhaps the only people who can help her figure it out are the very people she's desperate to avoid - the FBI.

Reviews

In this absorbing suspense tale, 16-year-old Violet has a special ability: Dead bodies call out to her, demanding that she find them. This sequel to The Body Finder (2010) easily stands on its own as a new, separate story, with only minimal references to the earlier book. Even better, Derting convinces readers to believe in Violet's supernatural ability, perhaps because it stands out in the sea of supernatural fiction... The author paces the story beautifully, weaving together several story lines as she inches up to the final, desperate scene. As Violet's difficulties increase, readers see her finally begin to learn that she may find more satisfaction through using her gift to help others than by guarding her own privacy. Imaginative, convincing and successful suspense. (Paranormal thriller. 12 & up) * Kirkus *

This is the second book in Kimberly Derting's The Body Finder series. Although the first book has a nice ending and the murder mystery was finally solved, this one is sure to grab your attention with an all new mystery. Violet and Jay are finally dating and things couldn't be better, until Jay befriends Mike and his sister. Things aren't quite what they seem and Violet must once again use her power to solve this new mystery. A must read.
