Book Description

Oct. 3 2006 A Harper Connelly Mystery (Book 1)
Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who's passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living - but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent - even if the dead can wait forever.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Ever since Harper Connelly survived a zap from a lightning bolt, she's been able to find dead people, a skill that makes the protagonist in the first installment of Harris's new series a tad more bizarre than the mind-reading heroine of the author's Sookie Stackhouse books (Dead as a Doornail, etc.). Harper travels to the Ozark town of Sarne, Ark., to find a missing teenage girl's body, accompanied by her stepbrother, Tolliver, who acts as her manager and bodyguard and with whom she shares a thinly disguised physical attraction that they manage to keep at bay by engaging in casual sex with various partners. Finding the body takes no time at all, but leaving town afterward isn't so easy. When Harper's life is threatened and Tolliver ends up in jail on trumped-up charges, it quickly becomes apparent that something sinister is going on in Sarne. Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters. A nifty puzzle toward the end will challenge the most jaded mystery buffs.

From Booklist

Prolific author Harris debuts a series that just might surpass all her others in popularity. Harper Connolly is honest, ethical, loyal, and, in many people's eyes, quite odd. Since being hit by lightning, Harper has a strange gift: she can find dead people and reveal how they died. Harper is so down-to-earth and delivers the story in such a straightforward way that even the most hardened realist eventually will accept the premise. In this first outing, Harper and her manager and stepbrother Tolliver travel to a small town in Arkansas to determine what happened to a local teenager. Once there, they learn that someone is willing go to great lengths--even murder--to bury a secret. While absorbing the usual mixture of awe, revulsion, and fear that her "gift" inspires in the locals, Harper tries to uncover the secret they are trying desperately to hide. Future stories may shed more light on Harper and Tolliver's relationship, which seems curiously close for a sister and stepbrother. A strong debut that will have readers dying for more. Jenny McLarin

2.0 out of 5 stars Such a disappointment, so boring.... March 10 2013
By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read a few of the Sookie Stackhouse novels by the same author -- I liked them but I didn't read the whole series simply because I'm not passionate about vampire stories. To my great disappointment, the first book in this series about a young woman who can see how people died turned out to be quite boring. The premise was intriguing and I was excited to start the book but, sadly, the story is told in a very monotonous tone with little emotion. It's like the author forgot to develop the sadness, the horror, the torment, the anger, the worry -- instead, she opted for a cool clinical approach. At some point, I started to wonder if she actually wrote the book herself...It's a far cry from the books that inspired the True Blood television series. I give this book only 2 stars out of five (bad, boring).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read May 1 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I discovered Charlaine Harris after watching the first season of HBO's True Blood. I enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series so much that I was interested in trying out her other series.

The idea of dead people speaking to the protagonist is not new - it's been done in the Sixth Sense and the aborted TV series Tru Calling. Charlaine Harris brings a fresh spin to it. Harper travels around the country to help police forces solve crimes and bring closure to the families of the deceased. The murderers don't want their crimes brought to light so this puts Harper and her brother Tolliver in a lot of danger. The twist is that Harper treats this like a business instead of a calling and provides her services for a fee. Her logical mind is refreshing to see in a protagonist instead of the highly emotional characters that appear in many books in popular literature today. I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series.
