EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Sep 26, 2006; Writer: Charlaine Harris; Genre: Fiction; Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime

In Grave Surprise, Charlaine Harris's sequel to Grave Sight, lightning-strike victim Harper Connelly — whose jolt gave her the ability to see dead people's demises — stumbles onto an abducted 11-year-old girl's body during a routine cemetery-side demonstration of her otherworldly skill. When suspicion turns to Harper, she and her dreamy stepbrother/love interest set out to solve the crime themselves.

Notable Arcana
The body sharing ground space with the girl is a 19th-century victim of blood poisoning.

Studio Pitch
Ghost Whisperer meets Clueless.

Lowdown
Charges in with plenty of plot, but lacks the thrills befitting a thriller.
