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 that the dead leave behind in the world... and the imprints that attach to their killers.
has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just
led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But
now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the
echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she
might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce
protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her
quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping
that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as Violet
is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer.. she might become
his next prey.
