Play Dead by Anne Frasier
Sorry for the delay since the last post, my world got busy with the upcoming school year. Back to the books!
This book is book one of a three (soon to be four) book series. I suspect more books are coming in this series. This book follows Elise Sandburg who is the daughter of an infamous root doctor in Savannah. Elise has disowned her past and works as a homicide detective. In this book, it follows Elise working on a case where people are being turned into zombies. Victims are being paralyzed through poison, and the paralysis mimics death. With each new lead, Elise is drawn more and more into her past that she has worked so hard to forget, and hard to keep her daughter out of. Elise’s partner, Gould, has a unique sense about him that makes him stand out in the homicide department. During the course of the novel, Elise realizes that she can’t outrun her past anymore and must turn to the most unlikely, and feared, person to help her solve the case. But Elise has to put trust where she is unsure it should be, and one wrong move could end up numbering her as another victim. Will Elise catch the killer before it is too late?
This book kept up with a decent pace. It was very easy to sit down and read this book (along with the others in this series). The relationship between Elise and Gould did get awkward at points with their interactions and some thoughts that occurred, but with more information being revealed throughout the book and the following books, it makes more sense. If you read this one, read the others in the series as well! They are all on amazon for free with the Kindle Unlimited program. Happy reading!
