Publisher's Summary

I am a living ghost, a wanderer in search of my purpose and place.
I'm a cemetery restorer by trade, but my calling has evolved from that of ghost seer to death walker to detective of lost souls. I solve the riddles of the dead so the dead will leave me alone.
I've come to Seven Gates Cemetery nursing a broken heart, but peace is hard to come by, for the ghosts here and for me. When the body of a young woman is discovered in a caged grave, I know that I've been summoned for a reason. Only I can unmask her killer. I want to trust the detective assigned to the case, for he is a ghost seer like me. But how can I put my faith in anyone when supernatural forces are manipulating my every thought? When reality is ever-changing? And when the one person I thought I could trust above all others has turned into a diabolical stranger?

More a "head" book, not so blood and guts. The narration is just right, and is Ms Hvam's usual superb job. This book is sneaky. It lures you along until you are suddenly checking the locks and wanting a warmer sweater. The people are people, not characters. You feel embarrassed with them and frightened with them, and want to check on their safety. One fault is Amelia's "too stupid to live" behavior in some instances. This series hooked me. I want to know why Devlin is such an ass, what's up with the mother and aunt, why Amelia is always is left out in the cold, what is with the family history and "gifts". Oh this book, and the series, is a tease for the next bit of information about Amelia. All that is outside the current mystery or investigation going on in each book. I will be reading this series and checking on anything else the author writes.

Thrill Ride

In The Sinner by Amanda Steven's the character Amelia finally has embraced who she is. I adore whom Amelia has grown into, despite her being extremely fearful in the last book. In this book she plunges head long into another supernaturally touched mystery.
This book in total was a great listen and the author thrilled and chilled me, but at the same time left the scratching my head. The head scratching would reveal spoilers which I won't do. I felt the ending came out of left field.
For those who love Devlin, he is absent from this book. I know it was hard on this reader too, but the author left Amelia high and dry and nursing a broken heart. The book starts about a year after the Devlin dump. Which was the most unemotional break up in history. As a reader I know how much Amelia love's Devlin but no real emotional reactions. She is very controlled from living with all those years with the rules, but if I can read about her fears I would love to read about her emotional turmoil too.
Despite the ending, this was a solid continuation to the series, and I highly recommend the series and this book.
