Publisher's Summary

A serial killer stalks the streets of Savannah....

Homicide detective Elise Sandburg and her partner, profiler David Gould, are all too familiar with the terrible costs of chasing evil. Despite their wounded psyches, the detectives delve into the deranged killer's twisted mind, determined to unravel the clues in the taunts he leaves behind.

A city gripped by fear....

When his daughter becomes the killer's next victim, a grief-stricken mayor comes down hard on the police, demanding that they catch the psychopath - now. Feeling the pressure, department officials enlist the aid of both Elise's estranged father and an FBI profiler who has unresolved business with David.

A cunning and elusive madman....

In a heart-pounding race to stop the next homicide, the detectives uncover their own role in the madman's deadly game. Will they outsmart the killer before another horrific murder takes place in their beautiful city? Or have Elise and David finally met their match?

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Wonderful police thriller set in Savannah!"

    Pretty Dead is the third novel in the Elise Sandburg series. The first two were disappointing, but this one makes the series worthwhile. I hope that the author continues the series.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    This whole series is excellent in my opinion. At the end of the third book I was smiling and hoping that the author continues the story of these people.

    "Amazing..."

    This series is absolutely on my best reads list. While I didn't always like or understand some of the actions the characters had to certain situations, I nevertheless cheered them on until the end! After a couple of revelations I gasped out loud and felt my body tense up like I was right there with them! Fantastic read and I'm definitely looking forward to the next book by Ms Frasier!

    "Third time is a charm."

    I felt like the first two books started off slow, but number three is outstanding.

    "Pretty Great"

    Each book in this series gets better. I hesitated giving book 2 a 4 star rating but this one earned it solid. Even though early on I figured out the mystery, it had a plot twist that grabbed me. Again, the characters are unique and the suspense makes your heart pound. I can't wait for a next installment, if one is planned. It's nice that this one didn't end with a cliffhanger, but rather a possible start of something new. I'd recommend this book and you can even read it as a stand alone as enough is summarized about background stories that you don't have to start with book one.

    "Love the series"

    First of all - I absolutely recommend reading/listening to all 3 of these books, and in order. The performance by Natalie Ross is incredible.
    There were a few things in this one, however, that I didn't love , having binge listened to this series in a short time. It seemed like a few story moments in this third book were off. Some moments were overdramatized and unnecessarily drawn out with excessive inner dialogue, and a few decisions were made that seemed naive or plain foolish for competent and professional detectives. I could describe it as having entered into a soap opera zone there for awhile... But- it's fiction and a great read so I'm willing to play along.

    Overall - the Elise and David story is definitely worth sticking with, and it's worth saying again --the narration is so excellent, the widely varied voices keep the listener locked in.

    "Love this series"

    Love this series looking forward to the next adventure as well as the next Bodyreader.

    Not sad to see the original antagonist killed off... there wasn't anything like able about her... hoping the bleeping jerk that caused the death of Gould's son gets his comeuppance and then dies a slow tortured death. 😡

    I love the connection and comradery between the two lead characters and hope to see more of JC, her father and his blushing new bride!

    "She does it again"

    This is a new title with players that we have met before and she does it again. This new mystery is as twisted and as devious as the other books in this series. I recommend it to anyone who loves southern charm and a good murder mystery.
