Harper Connolly Mysterys - Charlaine Harris (English)



01- Grave Sight


THE silent witnesses lie everywhere, passing from one form of matter to another, gradually
becoming unrecognizable to their nearest and dearest. Their bodies are rolled into gullies, shut in the trunks of abandoned cars, harnessed to cement blocks and thrown down to the bottom of lakes. Those more hastily discarded are tossed on the side of the highway—so that life, having swerved away, can swiftly pass them by without pausing to look.
Sometimes I dream I am an eagle. I soar above them, noting their remains, bearing testimony to their disposal. I spy the man who went hunting with his enemy—there, under that tree, in that
thicket. I spot the bones of the waitress who served the wrong man—there, under the collapsed
roof of an old shack. I detect the final destination of the teenage boy who drank too much in the
wrong company—a shallow grave in the piney woods. Often, their spirits hover, clinging to the
mortal remnants that housed them. Their spirits do not become angels. They were not believers
during life, why should they be angels now? Even average people, people you think of as “good,” can be foolish or venal or jealous.
My sister Cameron lies somewhere among them. In some drainage pipe or under some
foundation folded into the rusted trunk of an abandoned car or strewn across a forest floor,
Cameron molders. Perhaps her spirit is clinging to what is left of her body, as she waits to be
discovered, as she waits for her story to be told.
Perhaps that’s all they desire, all of the silent witnesses.






02 - Grave Surprise


While in Memphis, psychic Harper Connelly senses-and finds-two bodies in a grave. One of a man centuries-dead. The other, a girl, recently deceased. Harper's investigation yields another surprise: the next morning, a third body is found-in the very same grave.





03 - An Ice Cold Grave


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.





04 - Grave Secret


Lightning-struck sleuth Harper Connelly and her stepbrother Tolliver take a break from looking for the dead to visit the two little girls they both think of as family. But as they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface. Family secrets ensnare them both, as Tolliver learns his father is out of jail and Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister Cameron so many years before. And what she finds will change her world forever.
