Acclaimed New York Times Bestselling author Charlaine Harris, the
writer of the Sookie Stackhouse series, has joined the Dynamite
Entertainment family with the first book of her hit Harper Connelly series,
For the past five years, readers have been thrilled by the Harper Connelly
series which follows a woman who 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.
At the age of 15, Harper Connelly was struck by lightning, an event that
gave her the ability to find the dead and see how they died. Since then,
Harper's scratched out a living selling her services to anyone with a checkbook.
It's not the best life, but it beats the alternative - at least until
Harper and her brother Tolliver roll into Sarne, Arkansas and find themselves
embroiled in a murder mystery!
