The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found. Violet can sense the echoes of those who’ve been murdered and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally, she’d turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike’s tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.


When I first read The Body Finder I thought, “Holy Crap! This book was awesome!” I hadn’t read anything like it before, and I loved it. I think what I liked most, besides the hotness that is Jay of course, was the chapters where the killer would narrate. They were all creepy and since he is anonymous, each one had something that made you suspect someone in Violet’s life. One chapter he acted like he could be her dad, another her uncle, another Jay…Kimberly Derting had me going crazy trying to figure out who the killer was! I think I suspected everyone and as the book went on I crossed them off my list.

Because of the wild, fun ride that was The Body Finder, I am eagerly anticipating Desires of the Dead. I cannot wait to see what’s in store this time!! Only two more weeks!!

    LOL I know what you mean, I was almost paranoid while reading it. I'm exited about this one too, to see where Derting takes us now. 'The Body Finder' could have worked well as a standalone novel.Great pick and what a lovely blog you got here. I'm your latest follower :)
