In Association with
Former FBI Agent Jack Davis is brought in on a case in which people are dying in the same way they dreamed they would die. Still plagued by shakes that his doctor diagnosed as tics—annoying, but not especially dangerous to his health—Jack is hired by Milo Harper to figure out why his subjects, who volunteered for his study of the human brain, are dying. Is it suicide—or could it be murder?

Meanwhile, the FBI is convinced that Jack knows the whereabouts of the five million dollars that his deceased daughter, Wendy, stole in connection to a drug deal gone sour. They hound him until they get tired of the game, and then they present him with an ultimatum: turn in the money or go to prison.

The Bureau wants Jack off the case—but, with the help of ex-cop Lucy, who is as beat up and scarred as he is, Jack races to find the killer before anyone else falls victim to their nightmares.

Attention-grabbing, with a clever plot, The Dead Man will keep you guessing right up to the chilling end. As I read, I had a couple of suspects in mind; I just didn’t know who it would turn out to be. And that’s part of the fun in reading this edgy suspense. You’re never quite sure what’s going on, but you’ll enjoy trying to puzzle it out anyway.

Jack Davis is a different kind of hero. He has a major disability—but that doesn’t stop him from heading face-first into danger if it means catching a killer. You’ll feel for this character as he struggles with his body’s betrayal, his daughter’s death, and his need to crack a case.

With tragic but lovable characters, The Dead Man, is a pleasant and intriguing read from beginning to end. And since the characters’ personal lives are just as fascinating as the rest of the story, you’re going to want to follow former FBI Agent Jack Davis in future novels, too.
