Waking the Dead by Heather Graham (A Cafferty and Quinn Story)
My Review: Waking the Dead
This is the second book in A Cafferty and Quinn series. It can stand alone but I like them together. I reread Let the Dead Sleep by Heather Graham. I was only going to look it over. The same characters are back and few new ones. It is a scary book. If you scare easily don't read at night and in foggy weather. The suspense was good about all the bad guys till the end. Was some love scenes that I skipped over. Lots of violence of different murders taking place.
The plot was good, and kept you guessing. A family of five was murdered the day Michael Quinn gets back into town. He is called into it because of what was not found on the scene. A painting from 1816 is m
issing and death follows the painting. It is in New Orleans. They need to find it and stop it some how.
Danielle Cafferty, Michael Quinn and friends all join together to find the painting and stop the killings. They have gathered together an odd bunch. Danni is an artist that owns a antiques shop, Quinn a P.I., Bo Ray & Billy work for Danni, Father Ryan a Catholic Father, Natasha a Voodoo priestess , Ron Hubert ME & Hattie. They even have to leave the country to stop the evil killings in New Orleans.
The characters are so different and work together so well. I hope that their are going to be more of Cafferty and Quinn together in the future.
I like how took some facts about 1816 and worked them into a story in modern New Orleans.
The setting was New Orleans now and Switzerland of 1816 and 2013. Some of the scenes in the castle I would not want to see at all.
Did not want to put the book down. I am glad I did not read at night.
I will read more of Heather Graham's work in the future.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
