Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Staub (Dead Before Dark) follows an innocuous stuffed animal into a widening spiral of intrigue in this absorbing series launch. Newly single mom Lauren Walsh asks her ex, Nick, to look for their daughter’s toy rabbit in the lost and found at Grand Central Station. In the heart of Manhattan, Congressman Garvey Quinn is riding a popularity wave that could carry him to the White House—but only if he can keep a certain dark secret from bubbling into public view. And in a small Connecticut town, Elsa and Brett Cavalon are still grieving 14 years after their son was kidnapped from their backyard. The connections among these troubled families are slow to reveal themselves, but once Staub’s brilliant characterizations and top-notch narrative skills grab hold, they don’t let go. (Mar.)

    Live to Tell

    As usual - Wendy is a great writer. Couldn't put this book down! A little different is the way Wendy jumped back and forth between characters. However, I liked it well enough to buy Scared to Death - the sequel. I have read Wendy for many years and have enjoyed her thoroughly. One of my favorite writers!!!! Highly recommend this book -

    Kept me on the edge

    Great Read. I love they way it skips around to all the characters and then brings them all together in the end. A little tough to keep up at first but that's what makes is so great.

    Had me hanging until the end

    This was well worth the price!!! Had to hang in there in the beginning because it bounced around a little to different characters until it had everyone tied in. Once the groundwork was layed....WOW!!!

    highly entertaining suspense thriller

    A man is being chased and he needs a place to hide a memory stick. He steals a young girl Sadie's rabbit and leaves it at the lost and found at the Grand Central subway station

    In Glenhaven Park, New York Lauren Walsh struggles to cope with losing her husband to another woman. However, Lauren notices someone watching her house especially her daughter Sadie. Her child tells her mom someone entered her room because the invisible wire she put on the door is on the floor.

    Republican gubernatorial candidate right wing Garvey Quinn has a secret if revealed would destroy his political career. He has someone seeking the individual with the information that would ruin him. One of his trusted aides says it is inside a pink rabbit dropped off at a lost and found. Sadie's father picks up a pink dog as that is what he though his angry ex ordered him to find. Quinn's aide targets the Walsh family as he will do whatever it takes to obtain the memory stick. Meanwhile Elsa Covington mourns her son abducted a decade ago; Quinn is the tie between these two moms.

    This highly entertaining suspense thriller grips the audience who knows what is happening but not why as whatever Garvey conceals at any cost to others remains unknown but tantalizes readers into trying to guess the answer. Garvey makes the tale work as a fully developed villain who uses loyal people to commit crimes that cannot easily be tied to him so he can claim plausible deniability. Lauren is reeling with the ugly divorce, but remains strong especially a lioness protecting her cubs. Fans will root for her and Elsa knowing anyone who accidentally ends up inside of Garvey's circle either as a friend or not is an expendable pawn.

    Great story. Believable plot and characters. A few subplots whi

    Great story. Believable plot and characters. A few subplots which tied together in the end. I did not guess the who dunnit or the why. Although this book had an ending, it left one character for the sequal to be focused on. I only paid 1.99 for this e-book which was worth it, however I do not know if I want to pay 7.99 for the follow up.Maybe Harriet will tell me all about the sequal so I don't need to spend the money for it.

    Awesome!

    This book had me entertained all the way to the end! I took a chance on an unknown (to me) author, and I was NOT disappointed! I am now onto finding the next book in this series. What an ending!

    Poorly executed

    The basic premise was interesting but the writing was very poor. The character development was weak at best and laughable for some of the characters. Glad I only paid 99 cents for it. A real writer with a decent editor could probably make the idea into a decent book but THIS writer was not that person. Don't waste your pennies and time on this one!

    Kept me guessing!

    Family, excitement, jealousy, love, fear, and suspense, LIVE TO TELL, by Wendy Corsi Staub, has it all! This is the first Wendy Corsi Staub novel I have read, and without question, I am impressed. I will most definitely follow this author. I cannot wait for the sequel!
    You would think that raising three children, in suburbia, would be relatively predictable. Not if you are Lauren Walsh and your husband, who is apparently having a midlife crisis, with an older woman none-the-less, somehow manages to bring home the wrong stuffed animal from lost and found and connects your family to political secrecy, crime, and murder. This well written story keeps you guessing throughout the book, and guessing wrong at that. I love a suspense novel that I am unable to predict, and LIVE TO TELL, was that for me. If you are looking for a page-turner, take a look at this one.

    A Really Good Read As others have said, it was a little hard

    A Really Good Read



    As others have said, it was a little hard to keep up with all the characters in the beginning. In fact, I groaned when she introduced someone and said to myself "not ANOTHER one" and then smiled when the character was as quickly written off as he came in. I especially liked the fact that one of the characters telling the story was a four year old. Once I had all the players straight, the novel flew by and I couldn't put it down. I too would like to purchase the sequels.
