My Summary: Violet Ambrose can see and hear echoes of the dead. Ever since she was a child, she's always been drawn to animals that have been killed...and even humans that have been killed.     When a serial killer starts to prey on innocent girls in town, Violet knows that she's the only one who will be able to spot the killer, and the echoes of his victims that cling to him. Except Jay, Violet's best friend, isn't too keen on letting Violet run around looking for a killer. …

If you're looking for a scary and sexy read, consider it found.    …

When it becomes evident that a serial killer is at large in her community, Violet is certain that she can find the killer and bring him to justice. But even with Jay and her family trying to protect …
