Publisher's Summary

No one is more familiar with Savannah's dark side than homicide detective and native resident Elise Sandburg. She's been haunted for years by her own mysterious past: She was abandoned as a baby in one of the city's ancient cemeteries, and it’s rumored that she is the illegitimate daughter of an infamous Savannah witch doctor. The local Gullah culture of voodoo and magic is one that few outsiders can understand, least of all Elise’s new partner. Now someone is terrorizing the city, creating real-life zombies by poisoning victims into a conscious paralysis that mimics death. As the chilling case unfolds, Elise is drawn back into the haunted past she's tried so hard to leave behind.

Fun listen

Did not expect to enjoy a story steeped in the occult. Found it to be a lot of fun. Interesting characters. Narrator is excellent. Will try the next in the series

Sorry to be so critical but.....

What disappointed you about Play Dead?

I think this could have been a good audible book with a different narrator. The story seemed good but I have listened to so many audible books with good narrators that I won't waste my time bad narration to a good story!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have changed narrators!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Such breathy, fakey voice and intonations. The male voices were awful.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Play Dead?

I don't know because I am returning all 3 of this author's books whose main character is Elise Sandburg because of the narrator's awful way of narrating what I think would have been a good story!m

Any additional comments?

Why would an author consent to having a poor narrator after all the work it took to write and publish the 3 Elise Sandburg books? I started listening to the first one of this series and had to stop. I then checked to see if book 2 and 3 had the same narrator. It was disappointing to find the same one.
