"The sheriff didn't want me there."
"Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. 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 stepbrother Tolliver as her 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. "
I liked the main characters Harper and her step-brother Tolliver. I especially liked how her ability to sense the dead was explained and how it often posed problems for her clients as they didn't always liked the answers she gave them. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Grave Surprise.
