When Sally Blue was six, a gunshot woke her and subsequently ripped her world apart. Jolted awake, Sally ran to her parents’ bedroom for comfort. Instead, she found her father myteriously missing and her mother slumped against the headboard, her nightgown shredded by a shotgun blast. Climbing on the bed, Sally cradled her mother’s head, mindless of the blood and stench of death. Yet from somewhere deep within the lifeless body, Sally heard the voice of her mother warning her: “Run, Sally! Run!”

Twenty-five years later, Sally has finally stopped running. She has found a modicum of peace as a mortician’s beautician, able to take solace from the voices of the dead that trailed her for years wherever she went. Yet a grisly murder reawakens her ‘gift’, forcing Sally to turn to Jersey Castle, homicide detective by day, punk rock drummer by night, and the last person Sally might expect to help her. But what Sally doesn’t know is that someone has been hunting for her all this time. They voices of the dead are all around her, and if she is unable to silence them the next voice to join the cacophony of death will be Sally's own.

—Robert Dugoni, #1 New York Times bestselling author of My Sister’s Grave
