Description

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. Daughter of the groundskeeper and Murray's one living friend, Pearl 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. Author Charlie Price's debut novel has garnered praise for this unusual, and sometimes funny, mystery. Booklist says listeners "will like the edginess and be intrigued by the extrasensory elements as well as the darker turns the mystery takes."

Professional reviews

"Murray Kiefer talks to dead people. With a promiscuous mother, an absentee father, nasty schoolmates, and a twisted, vengeful detective on his case, it's no surprise that Murray spends most of his time in the cemetery listening to those who died young. When Murray hears a new voice pleading for help, he thinks it might be Nikki, a cheerleader who disappeared. With the help of his only friend, Pearl, Murray does his best to solve the mystery. Roberto Ramirez's performance reflects the despair, rage, and loneliness of the teenaged social misfit. Ramirez handles the voices of the living and dead smoothly. With its subject matter focused on thoughts of suicide, as well as addiction, murder, and rape, this novel is meant for older listeners. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
