The book follows Harper Connelly, who was struck by lightning when she was 15 & therefore now has the power to track corpses, & see the moments right before they died. People hire her to find their missing loved ones. I really liked Harper's character--of course she feels a little out of place in the world since so many people look at her like the anti-Christ, or like she's crazy, but she still continues to do her job to help bring closure to people & despite what people think she feels like she's doing something good.
Series followed by Grave Surprise and An Ice Cold Grave. The fourth book, Grave Secret, is scheduled to be published in October 2009. If you read this, you'll want to read the whole series!
