Hired to find a boy gene missing in Doraville, North Carolina, Harper Connelly and her brother Tolliver head there, only to discover that the boy was the only one left of several who had disappeared over the previous five years. All of them teenagers. All unlikely runaways.

All calling for Harper.

Harper soon finds them—eight victims, buried in the half-frozen ground, all come to an unspeakable end. Afterward, what she most wants to do is collect her fee and get out of town ahead of the media storm that's soon to descend. But when she's attacked and prevented from leaving, she reluctantly becomes a part of the investigation as she learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and long-hidden secrets of Doraville—knowledge that makes her the next person likely to rest in an ice-cold grave.

More Serious than her vampire books, this focuses on the ugly side of humans and the evil men do. Some of the feeling between the brother and sister may make this inappropriate for teens, and the descriptions of torture, although relatively mild push this to an adults only book.

A different series by Charlaine Harris. This is the 3rd book ... interesting story lines; hope she has more planned.

This is the third book in the Harper Connelly Mystery series.
This book is by far the best so far. The mystery is troubling and the writing is awesome. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the murderer to be caught. There are more than a few frightening and terrifyingly disturbing moments in this book.

It was a well written edge of your seat read (I did not find this one boring) and one I'm more comfortable with now that some of my questions have been answered from the first book. I'm looking forward to book 4.
I also hope this isn’t the last that we see of Manfred, their Psychic friend.

This is the third book in the Harper Connelly Mystery series.

For the past several years six boys around the same age have gone missing in the small town of Doraville. The previous Sheriff refused to investigate their disappearances, claiming they were probably runaways or suicides. The new sheriff, who was deputy under the old sheriff, has always thought something was wrong.
Twyla is the grandmother of one of the missing boys and is willing to try anything at this point. She convinces the sheriff and the other townspeople to hire and give Harper a chance. It isn't long before Harpers talent is once agan put to the use and dead accurate, and this is such a horrific crime. It's Haper's toughest case so far.
Harper and Tolliver want nothing more than to leave town just as soon as the check for their services is cut. Unfortunately, the Sheriff and the State Bureau of Investigation aren't going to allow that--and an attack on Harper puts her in the hosital which makes leaving town out. An ice storm is closing in and a serial killer is on the loose. He's got a particular interest in Harper since she was the one who found his toture chamber/bural ground for the boys.
