Genevieve O'Brien knows all about nightmares. She survived for two months as the prisoner of a deranged killer. Now a new menace is stalking the streets of New York.
The media are buzzing about the Poe Killings, a string of homicides mirroring the author's macabre stories. Almost without exception, the victims have been members of a literary society devoted to the master of crime fi ction--and Genevieve's own mother may be next.
Spooked by the bizarre slayings, Genevieve turns to P.I. Joe Connolly, her rescuer, her friend and...? She wants him to be much more, but he's been avoiding her since her ordeal, and she can't seem to get close to him.
Joe isn't sure there even is a case. But as the body count rises and their investigation leads them miles from Manhattan, he has to admit that there's a twisted new serial killer at work.
Even more unsettling is the guidance Joe is receiving from beyond the grave. People he knows to be dead--his cousin Matt and Matt's fiancee, Leslie--are appearing to him, offering new clues and leads, and warning him of terrible danger ahead.
But not even otherworldly intervention can keep Genevieve and Joe's new nightmare from becoming terrifyingly real--and putting them squarely in the crosshairs between this world and the next.
My first review of The Death Dealer
Oh, fantastic to read this book again! Especially when reading this series in order, with all of the books, which didn't happen last time! So that was pretty great and awesome to be able to read with the previous book that these characters are in!
Excellent to read about these characters! And somehow, Adam seems to be in every book, whether just a mention, or something more, it seems! And having Genevieve and Joe having their story, that was just fantastic!
Really enjoyed this mystery, of maybe some of these events were connected, maybe not, and that sense of, what's going to happen next? So fantastic, lots of twists and turns, and just so incredible to read, and I enjoyed reading it so, so much!
With that ending, that was just a little bit creepy, that he would do that to Genevieve, even though she knew him, and was friends with him. But oh, that it was a killing pair, that was a really great twist to read, loved it! Though that she was worried about her position on the board just because she was interested in? That was pretty sucky!
Really fantastic book, and I just enjoyed it a whole ton!
