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?

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!

Excellent

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!

Loved the story

I enjoyed this audiobook, however, I did not like the narrator. I have to turn the volume up to hear what she was saying. Maybe she should have been narrating erotic books not a psychological suspenseful book. Uggh!

Horrible narrator

I have no idea if the story was good or not because o was so annoyed and distracted by the reader. All I know is the cadence and tone are horrid.

Awful

The performance was awful she had zero range to distinguish characters and the killer was so obvious.

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.

What has happened to Elise?

In book one, Elise was a powerhouse, book two, a sentimental, sighing teenager and in book three, an easily persuaded, unloyal friend and colleague. I truly wish we could return to the good old days. I'll keep on with this franchise, though at this point I'm wondering why. I have never eye rolled nor skipper past long meandering descriptions in all my listening time.

The wolf in sheeps clothing

Much better story line on this book three of this series. Full of twists , turns, half truths and excitement the book was very much a non stop listen/read . Great finale which has convinced me to buy book four.
