An Ice Cold Grave (Harper Connelly Mystery, #3

An Ice Cold Grave (Harper Connelly Mystery, #3) An Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second of this series that I have read. Harper Connelly was struck by lightning when she was young and since then can find dead people and knows how they died. She is reluctantly called in by a local sheriff who has been given the money to pay Harper to find her grandson and other young boys who have gone missing. It becomes apparent that there is a serial killer in the area.

I thought this was pretty good although very depressing, as all child murders or serial killer books are. The discovery of the killer is a little far fetched although one part of it, the actions of a young boy, is intriguing.

Still, this is very compelling and easy to stick with. Most of the characters are fairly well drawn and distinctive and Harris has some interesting repeat characters.
