Play Dead is a fast-paced, thrill-filled read that will keep you turning pages faster than your brain can keep up. The characters are both chilling and real. I became fascinated with the reality of the protagonists and how quickly I sympathized with their plights, both career and personal.

The twists, which are so important to this genre, are well-measured and believable. The story is strong, the themes developed. Overall, the novel appears seamless.

Strong with story and character, Play Dead is never a dull read. I will certainly be lining my shelves with more from Anne Frasier.

No one understands the dark side of Savannah better than homicide detective Elise Sandburg. As an infant, she was thought to be the daughter of a famous root doctor - and was abandoned in an ancient Lowcountry cemetery. Growing up, she was haunted by her possible connection to the local Gullah culture - with its spells and voodoo. Now there's a twisted killer on the loose, and the city is gripped by terror. Someone is using a substance that leaves its victims in a state that mimics death. As their bodies slip into irreversible paralysis, their minds remain fully, shockingly awake. (from back cover)

Once you pick it up you have to finish it! Lots of voodoo in Savanah with a love story intertwined. A quick read with a soupcon of terror and chills thrown in.

I really enjoyed this book. It had an element of darkness and psychological intrigue. The main characters were flawed but in ways that were believable. I was actually surprised by the main twist in the story which is always a good thing!

This is a good book if you're into voodoo, which I happen to find interesting. It actually ended up helping me with a project in school and I would highly recommend it because not only does it have some really cool ideas in it but it also is a very fun read. I found that I'm more into mysteries now because of this book, my interest in New Orleans/Louisianna is also peaked even more. Very good book!

Real Scarry!

Good story, I liked the characters and how each develops into their own style. I didn't think it was as fast paced as others did, the suspense factor was there but not as intense as it could have been. A good read.

Frasier has you thinking Strata Luna, a protegee of Elise's father, is the murderer. The murderer is isn't revealed until the last chapter. Most of the victims are prostitutes with a Black Tupelo tattoo (Strata Luna's employees).

A creepy, but thrilling plot.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Her USA Today bestseller, Sleep Tight, was called "compelling and real-a great read" by Andrea Kane. "Guaranteed to keep you awake at night," raved Lisa Jackson. Now, Anne Frasier takes readers to the dark side of Savannah, where a female homicide detective must confront the truth about her own past in order to stop a twisted serial killer...
