The Lonely Dead is a thrilling and wondrous mystery novel by April Henry. This book is about a girl named Adele who can see the dead. Adele's grampa takes her to the psychiatrist and the psychiatrist told her that she has a disease where she could see things that weren't there. One day she finds her ex-best friend (Tori) calling out to her and pleading for her to tell her parents that she is dead. When Tori’s body is reported to the police, they lead an investigation to figure out who murdered Tori. I love the way the author puts hooks in every chapter and page, I didn’t want to put it down at all because it was so suspenseful. I recommend this book to anyone who loves murder mysteries and a lot of suspense. That is why I rate The Lonely Dead a 5/5.
