Waiting on Wednesday #26 - Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.



Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting
Publisher: HarperCollins (US) Headline (UK)
Release date: March 15th 2011 (US) March 17th 2011 (UK)

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger. 


Desires of the Dead is the #1 book on my wishlist for 2011. I loved The Body Finder so much, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. Also, these books are a little dark and edgy, so I think this is a fitting pick for my Halloween edition on Waiting on Wednesday! :) Let me know what  you think and share your links in comments!
