Violet can find dead people, well murdered people. She can sense their bodies by an echo left on their body. An imprint is also left on the killer, too. When she was little, she had to bury a graves for animals to find solace in it. As if her powers weren't enough to deal with, Violet has a sudden, inexplicable, and consuming crush on her best friend since childhood, Jay Heaton. Now a serial killer has begun terrorizing Violet's small town and she realizes that she is the only one that can stop him.
The characters are fantastic. Violet is compulsive, but lovable and relatable. Jay is mysterious, but caring and cute. The killer is well done, he seemed crazy and like someone I wouldn't want to mess with. I liked that there were chapters of inside the killers mind. The plot is amazing. This book is impossible to put down. It was filled with suspense, romance, and action.The setting is awesome. I have been in the area before and it is well described. The Body Finder is really original. I love how the book is presented. Derting makes and amazing debut. I love this book and totally recommend it.
