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.
This was a page turner that kept me up beyond my bed time each night. i dont usually care for voodoo type stories, but this was more mystery than voodoo so kept me at attention
Spells and voodoo abound in this interesting and informative "watch your back" thriller.
Good read. Not really what I expected, but not TOO out there.
Voodoo? Zombies? Interesting book .... Twisted killer on the loose...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.
A good suspense novel about a killer on the loose in Savannah and Elise Sandburg a homicide detective who was abandoned at birth in a Lowcountry cemetery has to find out who is doing all the killing.
One of the "new" mystery authors I've learned of since joining PBS - she's a great read!
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!
I really enjoyed this book. Great characters and story. Good twist to the story. Ending not what Is suspected. Really enjoy this authors books.
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)
Excellent crime drama that delves into the world of the unknown.
What can I say??? I'm hooked on this author. I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I couldn't put it down once I started it.
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.
Another wonderful Anne Frasier book.
Great suspense! Loved it!
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.
