Southern mystery writer Charlaine Harris is the New York Times best-selling author of Grave Sight and the Sookie Stackhouse series. Supernatural curiosities, finely wrought characters, and unpredictable plotting combine in this exciting whodunit. Twenty-something Harper Connolly has a gift. After being struck by lighting as a child, she discovered an eerie ability to locate the deceased. In Memphis, skeptical Professor Nunley wants her to demonstrate that skill at an ancient cemetery. There, Harper stands atop a grave and says there are two bodies entombed: one centuries old, but the other, a young girl named Tabitha. Her assertion holds water. Tabitha has been missing for two years-and now the police are suspicious of Harper. So with her loyal stepbrother Tolliver, Harper begins to amass clues that will solve the case. Harris' expert pacing builds the suspense as two young sleuths navigate a string of strange occurrences that has others scratching their heads. Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan's careful reading makes this novel a sumptuous treat for mystery fans.

"Lightning strikes have different effects on people, and on Harper Connelly the effect is an ability to find corpses and understand how they were killed. She is invited to explore a cemetery by a Memphis college professor who believes everything related to the paranormal is a fraud. As she makes her way through the cemetery, she comes across a surprise--the body of Tabitha, a young girl she was hired to find 18 months earlier when the girl disappeared in Nashville. Alyssa Bresnahan gives a low-key performance that makes Harper a believable and sensitive character. Bresnahan's steady intensity brings the suspense to the fore without overstatement. J.E.M.
