"He talks to the dead. The dead talk to him." This fast paced mystery novel will have you on your toes from beginning to end. The main character, Murray, is very different from the other kids in his school, instead of hanging out at the mall with friends, he hangs out in cemeteries with the dead. But when Murray meets Pearl, the nosy daughter of the cemetery's caretaker, his whole world turns upside down as he works to solve Nikki, a missing cheerleader's disappearance, which turns out it quite a surprise. Even through frights and fights the children won't give up until they can get Nikki found. Each chapter switches who the main character is, so you know each character's view on things, which leads you to really wonder about who killed Nikki and who was just an innocent passerby. Murray's ability to talk to the dead really helps spice up the story so it isn't just another mystery book. It is one of the most original mysteries with one of the most unexpected endings I have ever read. I definitely would recommend this book to you! -RSK

I am soon to be a junior at Holt High School, and I am writing a review for English class. I read the book Dead Connection by Charlie Price. Friendship, fear, enemies are the themes through out the whole book This book is about 8 people whose names are Dearly, Murray, Gates, Pearl, Mr. Janochek, Billup, Drummond, and Robert, all trying to solve a mystery that has arisen not so long ago. They all are really helping each other solve the mystery but they don't even know who each person is. Murray's friends are not like the typical friends they are dead; however, he can hear and talk to them. One of them is Dearly and she is like his mother to him even though she is his age. He ends up getting a real life friend whose name is Pearl. Pearls is interested in Murray and she ends up helping him through tough times. Pearls dad is Mr. Janochek who is like a dad to Murray, because his mother is not there for him a lot of the time. Billup hates Murray because he walked in on him and his mother. Billup is an alcoholic and runs in to a lot of trouble in the book. Gates is the cop in the story tying to solve his case which affects all the characters in the book. Robert saw what had happened in the mystery but he can't remember what had happen because he has mental problems. Gates ends up helping Robert. Drummond is like the boss of Gates and tries to help him on the case. When I read this book, I liked it a lot. I give the book 5 out of 5 stars, because it was easy to read and follow through out the book; but also makes you think as you progress through the book. It was a very interesting book. I would recommend this book to all ages, because it is and easy book but it still challenges your ability to think what is going on in the book, it doesn't just come right out and tell you what happened. The book would go great with the series Scooby Doo because they solve mysteries with each other. The people that would not like it is the people that don't like to solve things and like to just be spoon fed every thing when they read.

Murray is an outcast, who talks to the dead. He visits the cemetery every day to talk to his friends. He stays away from most living people until he meets Pearl, the graveyard caretaker's daughter. She finds him strange, but is also drawn to him.

One afternoon, Murray hears a new voice. While he can hear her and sense her presence, he can't see her or talk to her. Meanwhile, the town scrambles to find out what happened to Nikki, a missing cheerleader. Murray and Pearl come to the conclusion that the new girl in the cemetery could be Nikki.

Is it possible that they've uncovered the biggest mystery in town? And if so, how can they tell someone who will listen to them and not think they're crazy?

Broken up into short chapters, DEAD CONNECTION takes several character perspectives, letting the reader unravel the mystery. I recommend this one to reluctant readers and mystery fans.

I thought this book was really good. When you first start to read it talks about different people and what is going on in their lives. Thought out the book Murray talks to the dead people in graves. This is what gets him to uncover a very important piece of information that no one else could seem to find. As the book goes on you come to see all the people end up being connected in some way. The only thing I didn't like is that to end of the book kind of keeps you wondering. But overall it was a very good book and I enjoyed it a lot.

I'm sorry to say that this book was a complete bore. The plot dragged on and on and on with an insufficient conclusion at the end. Very little of the events are explained enough, and the actual murderer isn't even introduced until towards the end which I find annoying as it doesn't even give you a chance to figure it out yourself. Not worth reading. Very evident that this is the author's first book.

When I first saw this book on the shelf, it interested me. So, I bought it, and on the ride home I began reading it. I was hooked from the beginning. The book keeps you guessing the whole way through, and once you think you have it figured out, something else is thrown at you! A real page turner. I highly recommend this book.

I am a huge fan of Dan Brown and Stephen King. Also intrigued by books about afterlife. When I saw this book and flipped through it in the store, it seemed to fit right into what I enjoy reading. Similar writing style to Dan Brown, a mystery and the afterlife connection. The only part I found difficult was that I wasn't immediately glued. I wasn't really connected until about 1/3 of the way through it, and then I was hooked. But I thought it was an all around excellent book.
