Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the outset of this violent, generic thriller from bestseller Staub, the third in a trilogy that began with Live to Tell and Scared to Death, a freak major earthquake hits Massachusetts, allowing an unnamed female convict to escape unscathed from the ruins of the Bridgebury Correctional Facility. The woman, taking inspiration from her Bible, starts a campaign of vengeance by shooting to death a wounded prison guard who once raped her. She quickly moves beyond crimes of opportunity to a careful strategic plan aimed at Lucy Walsh Cavalon, a pregnant computer network administrator hoping finally to carry a child to term. Lucy’s adversary, who once “had lived in a grand home whose marble bathrooms were stocked with fine European linens,” has it in for Lucy and her husband, Jeremy, who won a large chunk of the escaped convict’s assets in a damages settlement. Staub brings nothing new to the familiar psychotic-pursuing-a-vendetta plot line. (Oct.)
Examiner
“Scared to Death, like Live to Tell, demonstrates Wendy Corsi Staub’s talent for depicting the menace behind everyday events.”
Night Owl Reviews
“...a gripping, intense novel I could hardly put down. Filled with action, suspense and creepy antagonists, this story had me turning the pages to find out what happens next.”
RT Book Reviews
“Scared to Death is aptly titled—the momentum and chills keep going throughout the entire book.”
Shhanon Raab for Suspense Magazine
“Each twist and turn is methodical, meant to build anxiety as she cleverly yanks the rug out from underneath.”
New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak
“Clever, well-written and riveting. Wendy Corsi Staub is a master storyteller!”
Fresh Fiction
“A fast-paced, thrilling ride of suspense and terror that will keep readers guessing till the end.”
Bookreporter.com
“The narrative...stands on its own, with Staub’s trademark twists, turns, surprises and thrills carrying the day.”
Lee Child
“Solid gold suspense ... this one is a wild ride.”
New York Times Best-Selling Author - Brenda Novak

    an exhilarating novel.

    The earthquake shook Massachusetts. The Bridgebury Correctional Facility was totaled by the tremors and all inside assumed dead. However one female inmate believes the Book of Revelation End of Times has begun with the earthquake. When she miraculously survives while Sodom and Gomorrah like death is everywhere around her, she knows she is a chosen one of the Lord who kept her safe to cleanse the earth of the Lord's enemies and undesirable.

    Lucy Walsh and Jeremy Cavalon survived the attack of a serial killer when they were children. Several years ago the Cavalon family won a civil law suit that stripped the inmate of much of her assets. She is coming for them with the Lord on her side; she starts by killing his adopted grandmother Silvie Durand in New York. Lucy and Jeremy mourn Sylvie's death in what was reported an accident when the elderly woman slipped in her bathroom; but abuse victim Jeremy suspects something sinister though he and his wife remain unaware that a female inmate he thought died in Bridgebury is beginning her vendetta against the Walsh-Cavalon families.

    The third Walsh-Cavalon thriller (see Live to Tell and Scared to Death) is a chiller due to a brilliant psychopath who believes the Lord has saved this sheep to avenge what her infidel enemies did to her. With righteousness on her side, she starts by killing a guard who raped her before moving onto their families. The story line is fast-paced, loaded with action and stars a harrowing righteous villainess. Although the theme of a psychopath seeking vengeance has been used frequently in serial killer tales, Wendy Corsi Staub provides an exhilarating novel.

    Did not enjoy this book...

    Found this book to be a disappointment. Have enjoyed other Wendy Corsi Staub books but this one, in my opinion, relied heavily on the author constantly reminding the reader of what took place in the previous books and with the characters. So much so that I was beginning to wonder if this was serving as 'filler' and the real meat of the story was thin and could have been told in much fewer pages. I was truly looking forward to reading this book but see now easily could have skipped.

    Another good book by Wendy Corsi Staub

    If you haven't read this series yet I would recommend it if you like suspense books. This book was slow to start but once I got past the first couple chapters I couldn't put it down. This is the finale in a series so I would suggest getting all the books before reading this is not a stand alone book. I love all Wendy's books and this was another great series. Look forward to her 2012 series.
