Sixteen-year-old Violet has the unusual ability to sense dead bodies-or at least those that have been murdered. She locates them by the echoes they leave behind ... and the imprints they leave on their killers. She can hear, smell, and even taste, the echoes that linger in the wake of their deaths.
Violet has never considered her strange ability to be a gift-more like a very disturbing nuisance. But when a serial killer begins terrorizing her small town, and more and more local girls go missing and later turn up dead, Violet realizes she may be the only person who can stop him.
Violet's best friend since childhood, Jay, is reluctantly helping her-and Violet is beginning to realize that what she feels for Jay is much more than just friendship. But even as she and Jay fall in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering the killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
