The Body Finder - Read an Extract

The UK edition of The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting is not released until 11 November but those kind people at Headline have sent me an extract to share, containing the first 37 pages!

To make it available I have had to upload the file to my eurocrime website, so don't be alarmed when you see the url. You can view the extract here.

Here's a reminder of the blurb:

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies -- or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world...and the imprints that attach to their killers. Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift, but now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him. Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer -- and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer...and becoming his prey herself.
