Publisher's Summary

They say a painting can have a life of its own...

In the case of Ghosts in the Mind by Henry Sebastian Hubert, that’s more than just an expression. This painting is reputed to come to life - and to bring death. The artist was a friend of Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, joining them in Switzerland during 1816, "the year without a summer". That was when they all explored themes of horror and depravity in their art....

Now, almost 200 years later, the painting appears in New Orleans. Wherever it goes, death seems to follow. Danielle Cafferty and Michael Quinn, occasional partners in solving crime, are quickly drawn into the case. They begin to make connections between that summer in Switzerland and this spring in Louisiana. Danni, the owner of an eccentric antiques shop, and Quinn, a private detective, have discovered that they have separate but complementary talents when it comes to investigating unusual situations.

Trying to blend their personal relationship with the professional lives they’ve stumbled into, they learn how much they need each other. Especially as they confront this work of art - and evil. The people in the portrait might be dead, but something seems to wake them and free them to commit bloody crimes. Cafferty and Quinn must discover what that is. And they have to destroy it - before it destroys them.

    "Haunting depiction!"

    This has to be one of Heather Graham's most imaginative stories. I loved the look into each of the characters backgrounds. The historic shout outs to the great artists of a bygone era. A captivating look into artistry, no matter how horrific!

    "I have been pleasantly surprised"

    I have always enjoyed Heather Graham's books. This series has added some panache to her usual stories

    "That's not Scottish."

    I'm not sure what accent the person reading is attempting for Billy, it's indescribable and definitely NOT Scottish. It really takes away from the reading. If the same person reads the next book, I'll be taking a pass.

    "Great storyline"

    Love the storyline. Will listen to book one to see if I can figure out Danni's gift. This book keeps you hanging on that point. Reader could've done much better in the voices but still kept me listening.

    Story
    "Even better than Let the Dead Sleep!"
    Would you listen to Waking the Dead again? Why?

    I would listen to both the stories in the Cafferty and Quinn series again, particularly if Ms. Graham is going to continue the series. There was enough going on in each story that a re-listen would help.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Although I did guess the villain and the clue about the real painting, there were enough red herrings that I still had questions about several of the characters until close to the end.


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    I love Natalie Ross's narration in all her performances. Her female and male characters are seamless and don't distract from the story at all. She does a great Creole accent as well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Watch out for the fog, they strike when you can't see.


    Any additional comments?

    I had been feeling unresolved about the ending of Let the Dead Sleep and was quite happy that the story line took up very soon after the previous one. Both hero and heroine seemed to make much more mature decisions in this book.

    Story
    "Amazed"
    What made the experience of listening to Waking the Dead the most enjoyable?

    The story is superb and I like the addition of the new characters from book one.


    What other book might you compare Waking the Dead to and why?

    Blood Trade by Faith Hunter or Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland--same type genre!


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    She is good at the New Orleans accents which takes me deeper into the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Danni was in a perilous situation, she thought about her real love for Quinn and the thought of dying and having not told him.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic series---I can hardly wait for the next book. In the meantime, I have started another of her series---Phantom Evil.

    "Just "Okay". A bit disappointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I finished the book, but won't listen to it again. Some of my favorite books I've listened to more than once.


    If you’ve listened to books by Heather Graham before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good as the first in the series, and that is not saying much. Not up to par with some of Ms Grahams better books.


    Did Natalie Ross do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes she does a pretty good job differentiating the different characters.
