My name is Amelia Gray. I’m a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I’ve always held fast to the rules passed down from my father. But now a haunted police detective has entered my world and everything is changing, including the rules that have always kept me safe.
It started with the discovery of a young woman’s brutalized body in an old Charleston graveyard I’ve been hired to restore. The clues to the killer—and to his other victims—lie in the headstone symbolism that only I can interpret. Devlin needs my help, but his ghosts shadow his every move, feeding off his warmth, sustaining their presence with his energy. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I’ve vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the symbols lead me closer to the killer and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.
This is the type of book you want to read at night with just enough light to read by. Amanda Stevens has managed to write a story so compelling and eerie that you can feel it getting under your skin!
I simply could not put this down. And let me tell you, every sound that I heard while reading it caused me to jump a mile high!
This was definitely a murder mystery where I was not able to guess the plot ahead of time. It kept me wondering and salivating for more.
This was the first I had read by this author and apparently she has written quite a lot. So I will definitely make sure to add more of her works to my ever growing to be read list. But of course, since this was so good, her other works will move up the list very fast!
