Grave Sight (#1)

Next: Grave Surprise

The first Harper Connelly mystery from #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris!

Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who’s passed, and share their very last moment. Harper and her stepbrother Tolliver are experts at getting in, getting paid, and then getting out of town fast—because the people who hire Harper have a funny habit of not really wanting to know what she has to tell them.

At first, the little Ozarks town of Sarne seems like no exception.  A teenage girl has gone missing, but the secrets of her death—and the secrets of the town—are deep enough that even Harper’s special ability can’t uncover them.  With hostility welling up all around them, she and Tolliver would like nothing better than to be on their way.  But then another woman is murdered.  And the killer’s not finished yet…


“Prolific author Harris debuts a series that just might surpass all her others in popularity […] A strong debut that will have readers dying for more.”


“Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters.”

Publishers Weekly

“Leave it to the incredibly talented Harris to come up with another unique, troubled and utterly compelling heroine. The suspense is dark, and the paranormal elements creepy in this highly original tale that launches a new series. Paranormal mystery at its best!”

RT Book Reviews

“This new series seems more mainstream and considerably darker in tone than Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse vampire mysteries, but still has a folksy edge, a spooky but sweet amateur detective mystery full of interesting characters.”


“GRAVE SIGHT is an interesting blend of fantasy and crime [...] Harris has a gift for deft description, entertaining characters and interactions, and convincing plotting. I’m looking forward to more.”
