Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver take a break from looking for the dead to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But, as always happens when they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface.

To make matters worse, Tolliver learns from his older brother that their father is out of jail and trying to reestablish contact with other family members. Tolliver wants no part of the man—but he may not have a choice in the matter.

Soon, family secrets ensnare them both, as Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, so many years before. And what she finds out will change her world forever.

    " Fantastic ending to a great series, I only wish there were more than 4 books to it. Each book was better than the next. I must admit I miss Tolliver and Harper!! Best book of the series, perfect ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy Barber | 2/16/2014

    " Harris never seems to disappoint. I enjoy her story-telling and particularly appreciate her ability to write dialogue. I was satisfied with this as an ending to the series and look forward to her future works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Jones | 12/28/2013

    " Loved this series. Loved the mystery and and how the relationship progressed between step brother/sister. It was interesting to read how she was able to see how the deceased how died and how the family reacted to that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne | 11/19/2013

    " I'll really miss Harper and Tolliver. Good resolution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/17/2013

    " This was a lot better and far less annoying than the Sookie Stackhouse books. I wouldn't say it's great literature but it was definitely a tighter story and less annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisarenee | 11/16/2013

    " Loved this book. Finally a book from Harris where the main female character does not get hurt, though not for lack of others trying. I wish she'd do something like this with Sookie. Sounded like this could be the last book in the series, but I sure hope not. Harper, the main character, has power somewhat like a medium, but she got them after she was struck by lightening as a child. If a dead person is near by she can sense them and can usually determine what they died from. It takes a lot out of her as it can sometimes make her experience what the person felt in the last moments before death. Her Stepbrother now boyfriend has helped her for years and actually is the one who saved her when she got struck by lightening. The two go from one job to the next helping people locate their loved ones, but she can only help them if they are dead. She cannot find people who are alive. Over the years people have been upset with her findings or think she is evil because of specific talent. In this book Harper finds the answers to her own personal nightmare - what happened to her sisters 8 years prior when she mysteriously disappeared outside her school. Loved the way Harris had the story unravel. Couldn't put the book down and finished in one night. I highly recommend this one, but you really should read the previous books in the series to really appreciate this one. "

    " what a good ending to the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 9/18/2013

    " Have a feeling this may the last of this series as several questions brought up in the first book resolved. But it's a satisfying ending if it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie Brian | 9/9/2013

    " This series is weirdishly creepy yet intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 8/24/2013

    " Paranormal mystery, didn't have it all figured out. Entertaining, but I enjoy the Sookie series better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Huelster bociek | 8/15/2013

    " This was an excited book with lots of twists and turns. Unfortunately for me, this was the last book of a series of 4 and I read it first. I'm sure it would have been better if I'd already read the other 3. I will read them soon to see. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Mann | 2/20/2013

    " 3.5 stars. I like this series. This one felt so grim to me, though. Still enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Princess Allie | 8/12/2012

    " Great book, but the ending felt very rushed "

    " This was the best out of the four, I actually couldn't figure out who did what till the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kemsmiley1 | 8/6/2011

    " Very enjoyable book. The characters are likeable. The mystery had me guessing to the end. I enjoyed this one more than "Poppy Done To Death". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 6/18/2011

    " So, I guess this is the end of the series, huh? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise | 6/13/2011

    " I guess it wasn't about Harper's ability so much as it was about her family so it wasn't my favourite ... It did however tie up all the loose ends! (I figure it was the last in the series and it definitely did it's job at ending it) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 5/29/2011

    " Okay, I'm hooked! and this is the last one. Charlaine is releasing a graphic novel of this series in June, but I find graphic novels big rip-offs. Charlaine really can keep the suspence up and craft very likeable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 5/22/2011

    " Liked this. Would have liked it more if I had read the previous three books in the series. Whoops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/20/2011

    " 4stars-- I couldn't put this one down. Although I'm still not a fan of the main character- the mystery and tying up all the plots though out the series really kept the book moving. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myhotstylist | 5/18/2011

    " best of the 4 and we get to find out what really happened to Harpers sister. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ? Ashleigh ? | 5/13/2011

    " very interesting end. pretty abrupt though, i think this will be the last book of this series, which is a bummer - i enjoyed reading about harper's ability and the story's of the victim. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charmayne | 5/12/2011

    " end book of the series has some good plot twists and does wrap up a few lose ends. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 5/11/2011

    " A vast improvement over the last book in the series. I loved it because it answered a lot of questions... not sure what else there is left to do for these characters though... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 5/5/2011

    " I loved this series (much preferred it to the far-more-successful Sookie series), but this conclusion was disappointing. If Harper doesn't want people to think it's weird that she's dating her (step)brother, STOP INTRODUCING HIM AS YOUR BROTHER. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lou | 5/4/2011

    " Not sure where Harris can take this series from here, but I look forward to finding out. "
