A stunning omnibus edition of the entire Harper Connelly mystery collection

Harper Connelly has always been unique: ever since she was struck by lightning she's had the ability to locate the dead.

She does what she can to put her unique ability to good use, with the aid of her step-brother Tolliver, but it's not always easy. Her cases can be heart-wrenching, complex - and sometimes, if someone would rather the body wasn't found, they can even even be dangerous ...

Each of these engaging mysteries is smart, well-conceived and gripping. Sometimes sexy, sometimes challenging, sometimes heart-breaking, a Harper Connelly mystery is always a treat.

A Child Called It

Dave Pelzer
Authors:
Dave Pelzer

A harrowing, yet inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother - Dave became a slave; he was no longer a boy, but an 'it'. His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and unwashed, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl. The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors. But throughout Dave kept alive dreams of finding a family to love him. This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational book of the horrors of child abuse and the steadfast determination of one child to survive. It is the first book in the My Story trilogy.'His child's voice is immensely powerful and is an extraordinary testament to the human desire for survival.' Daily Mail'This heartfelt true story of one child's courage to survive cannot fail to move you.' Heat'It takes a personal testimony like Dave Pelzer's to bring home the horrors of child abuse - the secrecy, the shame, the struggle to survive.' Bel Mooney, Mail on Sunday'Pelzer is able to continue his dreadful story in an admirably dispassionate style ... It is this cool tone that makes what he has to say even more compelling.' The Times
