I like the cover on this for the colours…I’ve read the other two books in this series, so had high expectations for this one as well, which were met :))

Violet is working with a team who have special abilities – her ability is to be able to sense the dead and imprints left on the killer.  The plot in this is every bit as good as the last two books, as Violet tries to steer clear of trouble and out of a killers path.  She is *so* lucky in this book, although it alters her forever.  I was annoyed at her team leader, Sarah, who didn't take precautions for Violet which then means she is in harms way unnecessarily.  The evil permeates this book - the perps of the murders are very good at getting inside peoples heads.

I liked the connection to Rafe, and the surprising connections within the group.  In many ways I didn’t want this book to end, I really have enjoyed reading about Violet and her boyfriend Jay as well.

Book synopsis:

Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet's talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it's Violet's job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by "the girlfriend collector" she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new "relationship" and Violet may have caught his eye....
