Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Solomon hits the ground running with this gripping romantic thriller, pitting an obsessed artist against an even more obsessed fan. Still haunted by the 20-year-old murder of her famous fashion model mother, young photographer Gillian Gray is exhibiting a series of controversial self-portraits that show her posed in various grisly deathscapes. Giving her instant celebrity, the photos have also made her the target of conservative community groups, particularly in her hometown of Nashville. To keep her safe while she's home, Gillian's wealthy family contracts a bodyguard, staid ex-cop Ray Pierce. He realizes he may have his work cut out for him when Gillian kicks off her exhibit by challenging her mother's killer, via a crowd of reporters, to "come and get me." Indeed, it isn't long before someone begins sending out a photographic series of his own, recreating Gillian's images using the genuine article-dead women. Solomon's characters are convincing and compelling, especially Gillian, who makes an engaging heroine: smart, willful and profoundly damaged. Solomon's plot is good, suspenseful fun, but her ending is disappointingly off-target. (Mar.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Chapter One

From the edge of the angry crowd, he watched the fat black limousine crawl to the entrance of the Gray Visual Arts Center. The place blazed, lights piercing the night like knife points. Flags celebrating the art museum's first anniversary flapped against poles in the night breeze, snapping like skins.

Someone bellowed a chant. 'De-cen-cy! De-cen-cy!' The crowd joined in, fisted arms raised in time to the beat. 'De-cen-cy!'

A protester broke from the police lines and rushed the car, attacking the windshield with a homemade placard on a stick. The man couldn't read what it said, but he could guess from the others around him: go home, sicko, no to death art, jesus is the true sacrifice. A phalanx of uniformed cops pried the scraggly man off the car and dragged him away.

Amid the swirl-the multitude of TV trucks with their satellite antennas, the angry crowd, the police trying to maintain a barricade-the man stood still, hands buried deep in his jacket pockets. The eye of the hurricane.

He inhaled deeply, absorbed the chaos through his skin. It leached into his veins and up his bloodstream, pumped hard and fast through his heart. The noise, the excitement, the energy of the night juiced him with a seething envy he could hardly contain.

For her. All for her.

The crowdpushed against the police line as the limousine stopped at the foot of the museum steps. He stood in the back, and from that distance, the four passengers appeared like tiny dolls climbing the stairs. But he imagined them. Wrapped in silk and glitter, six-thousand-dollar tuxedos, three-thousand-dollar shoes.

And her pale, white body, such fragile beauty, soft and perfumed.

A swarm of reporters descended from all sides of the steps and overwhelmed the four passengers. The shape of the swarm bulged and contracted as people shoved each other for position.

Jealousy churned into white-hot resentment. It should be him up there. Him in the newspapers, him on television. It should be his name the crowd chanted.

She was a liar, and a cheat.

He was the real thing.

She only imitated death.

He created it.

    exciting romantic suspense thriller

    People either love or loathe the gruesome self-portraits of photographer Gillian Gray. However, she has only one person that she wants to provoke, the culprit who murdered her mother years ago while she was nearby. She wants this unknown beast to come after her, which is why she has allowed a showing of her work in Nashville at the Gray Visual Arts Center sponsored by her wealthy grandparents. --- Carleco Security is assigned to protect Gillian especially from protestors who might turn violent. When an incident occurs during the opening gala, former cop turned personal security specialist Ray Pearce reacts instantly no one is hurt, but Gillian¿s grandparents demand he personally keeps her safe. Her message to the killer has reached someone as people are being murdered and posed to emulate Gillian¿s images. As a confrontation seems in the works shortly, Ray and Gillian fall in love, but first she must complete her quest and he must keep her safe by preventing her from completing her quest. --- DEAD SHOT is an exciting romantic suspense thriller starring two individuals who differ on her quest with he worried about her safety while she offers herself as a target. The story line focuses on the relationship between these stubborn lead protagonists. Though using herself to coax out her mother¿s killer, who may be dead after all this time, seems a stretch, no one will care deeply as Annie Solomon hooks her audience with the first spilled blood and never lets go until the final DEAD SHOT reckoning occurs. --- Harriet Klausner
