Through Violet Eyes - Stephen Woodworth Mixed feelings on this one. I like the premise, being able to talk to the dead through the "Violets", but I had trouble accepting that these poeple would be forced into service and be bound to continue working through intimidation. I also never really understood what the motivation was for the killer and how his accomplice met her end. Since this is a first novel, I am inclined to give the second one a chance. While the first one wasn't horrible, the second one might be better and I did feel a connection with the heroine and I would like to know what happens to her.
