Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Anne Frasier takes listeners back to her dark, enchanting Savannah - a place as terrifying as it is mesmerizing. Homicide detective Elise Sandburg is traumatized after her run-in with a madman the press has dubbed "The Organ Thief". As Elise takes refuge in her deceased aunt Anastasia’s abandoned plantation to investigate and recover from her ordeal, she begins to question everything - from her dangerous line of work to her complex relationship with her handsome, tortured partner, David Gould. But with a madman on the loose, and her mother’s claims to still hear from Aunt Anastasia, she may have more immediate problems on her hands. In Elise’s world, where cold hard crime mixes with the local Gullah culture, nothing is ever what it seems, and no one is above suspicion - not even the dead.

4 stars with caution

This book could have earned 3 stars. There is an excessive amount of internal dialogue, especially by Elise, that does little to further the story line. Most of it, at the end, is irrelevant. The plot twists are predictable. I felt no "gasp" when all the pieces fell into place.

Yet there are three reasons why I gave this book 4 stars. First, I loved Natalie Ross' narration. Second, even though it was predictable, it had its suspense and there were parts when I couldn't stop listening. Lastly, although I'm upset with Elise and David's personal relationship, I enjoyed all the characters. No one is perfect and they all lend both humor and darkness to the feel of the book. (Except for the aunt!)

I would recommend as long as the reader doesn't expect this to become the next block buster thriller movie.

Review of first three Elise San burg novels

the narrator is very very good. I would read, actually listen to something else she narrated if the book interested me.

as for the books, like the first one very much even though it was a little dark. after that it became tedious and made my stomach hurt. also the books are marked out of order so if you listen to the one marked book 2 it is really the last book. anyway, I can think of better titles for these like "Torturing Elise" or "Big Secrets: torturing you self and others,".

this could have been such good stories, but there was no follow through and not enough laughter to counteract the endless endless pain. No one ever seen get together.

The author is a very good writer though, and I would still try other things she writes. good reading and good listening.
