Editorial Reviews

Karen Meek
<I>Twice Dead</I> sees the return of writer Taylor Madison and her pet ferret Hazel who debuted in <I>Diamondback</I>. Taylor has moved into the previous sheriff's old house in the small town of Perdue, Texas and her boyfriend is the gorgeous acting sheriff, Cal Arnette. This is one of my favourite scenarios, where events in the past are revealed and old mysteries solved and it is told well in <I>Twice Dead</I>. The main characters are delightful and a few new
Kris Neri
Elizabeth Dearl's <I>Twice Dead</I> explores both the sunny side of small-town life and the shady parts of the human soul with equal aplomb. A missing evangelist, a mother-daughter feud with no known cause, a skeleton that drops from a chimney, a cunning frame--<I>Twice Dead</I> takes more turns than a Texas twister. It'll keep you guessing.
Jo Rogers
<I>Twice Dead</I> is a gem of a mystery, and Taylor Madison grows ever more loveable as she stumbles over and through a mountain of evidence as she tries to find the killer. She jumps to many wrong conclusions before she finally reaches the right one. This is a quick read, so you might not have to put it down if you start early enough! I enjoyed this one thoroughly and look forward to the next Taylor Madison caper.

    Twice Dead doesn't disappoint!

    Elizabeth Dearl's Twice Dead is a wonderful read. Don't pick it up if you're going to have to stop in five or ten minutes because you'll be hard pressed to put the book down. It's filled with well-conceived, delightful characters; a plot that, as one reviewer in the cover pages put it, 'has more twists than a Texas twister' (the best analogy, really, for this book); and colorful phrases that pull you in and make it so easy to keep gobbling up the story. Plus, there's even a recipe at the back of the book! Truly, this book was a delight to read (and a stumper to solve!). Ms. Dearl is perhaps the best lesser-known mystery writer of the day, but she's on par with the likes of Agatha Christie, Mary Higgins Clark, etc. This book won't disappoint at all.
