Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with.
But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly.
