Reviver by Seth Patrick

Jonah Miller is a Reviver, able to temporarily revive the dead so they can say goodbye to their loved ones—or tell the police who killed them.

This book is kinda divided into two different stories.  There's the story about the the Revivers and their work and what they do.  In addition, there's a story about the dark side of Reviving and people who want to use it for nefarious purposes.  Personally, I didn't care for the "dark side" story.  

The part of the story about just the Revivers and their "regular" work, was really awesome.  I liked the idea of a CSI type group of people and their purpose was to raise the dead for a couple of minutes to name their killer or say goodbye.  That'd probably make a cool television show.   AMC please, not network!

Good job Seth Patrick!  Can't wait to read more.
