I enjoyed Scared to Death for what it is: a down to earth, readable and reasonably suspenseful modern police procedural. This novel may not a groundbreaker, but it contains all the elements of a good mystery and stands out in a few areas: a feeling of spookiness in the atmosphere, a descriptive darkness pulls the reader in; crimes that made me shiver but that were not overdone, or overtly gory- more of a slow-burning suspense. I liked that the author created a sense of ambivalence between the victims and the evildoer, as more and more is learned about what the victims’ own behavior might have provoked in an individual with a fragile ego. Finally, the author has crafted an enigmatic heroine, who shows true strength, grit and most importantly, class, in her dealings with some tough politics at the office. This was a good read and I look forward to seeing what the series has in store.

Thanks to the author and Audioboom for the review copy. This is a great beginning to a new-to-me, detective series. Strong female lead- exciting story. Looking forward to reading more.

Great book, fantastic narration, five stars all the way. Will be getting the next one
Really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. A good strong female lead surrounded by bullying bosses. Can't wait to start book 2
