This is the first book in the "Flynn Brothers Trilogy." In it, three brothers inherit a mansion outside New Orleans that's an interesting "fixer up." It comes complete with ghosts and a very interesting history.

Loved the characters in this story. The author did a good job of tying the past into the present. And it was difficult to figure out who the current serial killer was who was burying the bones at the mansion and imitating a serial killer that prowled the grounds during the Civil War.

I had a hard time putting the book down and can't wait to start the second book, "Deadly Harvest." The third book, "Deadly Gift" is also available now. I give "Deadly Night" 5 STARS!! This trilogy is gonna be great!

Aidan Flynn and his brothers inherit a Louisiana plantation from a relative they never knew, and decide to restore it. But, there are old legends and strange occurrences surrounding the house and stables, as well as in the cemetery on the grounds. And, Aidan cannot understand why he keeps seeing a "lady in white" on the balcony. At first he believes it must have been Kendall Montgomery, the woman who helped Amelia Flynn during her last days, and was at the house when Aidan and his brothers arrived. Kendall's grief for Amelia causes some resentment for the brothers, as she at first doesn't understand how they couldn't have known about Amelia, and been there for her before she died. Amelia obviously knew about them. But, as human remains are found on the property, blood on a head stone, and ghosts appear daily, Aidan and Kendall know they have to find out why past events seem to be repeating themselves in the present. Once I started reading, I could not put this one down.

I loved this book! The characters were great, it was suspenseful, spooky, and had just enough of a romantic subplot to be realistic but not cliched or annoying. The New Orleans setting was a lot of fun, and I was constantly going back and forth about who "the bad guy" was. If you like spooky mysteries that involve ghosts and voodoo, you'll like this one a lot. First in a series.

Good book, kept my interest. I'm a huge Heather Graham fan. The only negative I found to this book was the constant dreams. It was a story line that was overdone. But otherwise a good book. Look forward to reading the next two.

Very good read. Not my usual type of read, but still good. I read the Seven Brothers Trilogy by Nora Roberts and loved it. Was looking for something along the same lines. This trilogy was not as good, but still worth the read.

When Aidan Flynn and his two brothers inherit a mansion outside of New Orleans, they soon hear the stories about it being haunted. Tarot card reader Kendall Montgomery fills them in on the legends of the old plantation house. But when Aidan discovers a thigh bone from a human female, he starts looking into the possibility of a murder. The authorities in town are not very concerned, believing the bond is a remnant from one of the victims of Hurricane Katrina. But Aidan digs into some missing persons reports and fins a pattern of a serial killer.

This is the first book in Graham's Flynn Brothers Trilogy. I like the setting in New Orleans and wanted to visit Bourbon Street. The mystery was interesting and there were several suspects to pick from. I did get bored with the heroine always believing someone was watching her or someone was following her. I think it happened every time she walked down the street. The romance was just OK to me. Overall, I thought it was just a mediocre read. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

Deadly night is one of those books that makes you want to keep reading to find out who dun-it! The ending was a bit of surprise. I thought it was going to a dumb paranormal kind of book. But really it wasn't. That was just part of the story line. It has a bit of nice romance the old fashion kind with some up to date kind. It takes place after Katrina also. So it isn't to out dated!
