The “Back Cover”:

From Publisher’s Weekly…

Frasier (Sleep Tight, etc.) has perfected the art of making a reader’s skin crawl, which is  evident from this book’s very first scene, in which a medical examiner discovers in the  midst of an autopsy that the cadaver he’s working on is really a live person. Set in  Savannah, Ga., this exceptional thriller follows the hunt for the deranged person who’s  drugging people so that their minds remain wide awake even as their bodies resemble  death. The creepiness factor increases when Frasier introduces homicide detective Elise Sandburg, who was abandoned in a cemetery as a baby and who knows Gullah spells and culture. Elise’s partner, anti-social David Gould, is equally strange; his past holds secrets so dark he should be under psychiatric care. Formerly with the FBI, Gould currently lives in a rundown, foul-smelling apartment and sleeps with a prostitute who works for a voodoo priestess. As the two detectives follow leads to the priestess and the former college professor who researched the drug, they forge a tentative bond and come to terms with their own troubled pasts. Frasier’s characters are not only fully realized, but fascinating to boot, and she evokes the dark, mystical side of Savannah with precision and skill. Appropriately, this unsettling tale closes with a grim children’s rhyme and a spell for “Elise’s Follow-Me-Boy Mojo.”

Lot’s of 4 and 5 star reviews for this book plus the fact that it sounds like an excellent, creepy read makes Play Dead this Friday’s free read. I might save this one till closer to Halloween! Would love to hear your thoughts after you have read it! Happy Reading!

About Jennifer @Can'tPutItDown

My name is Jennifer and I have a reading problem... yes I am a book junkie. Whether I am reading on my Nook, on apps on my phone, or an actual book in hand, I always have a book with me! If I am going to post spoilers (which I don't like to do because I don't like to ruin a good book for those who have not read it) I will tell you before I get into my review. Feel free to leave me some feed back! Thank you to author Tim O'Rourke for encouraging me to start this blog! Follow me on Goodreads.com at http://www.goodreads.com/lovemynook
