Deathscape by Dana Marton

"... sucked me in from the beginning and kept me guessing... the characters are real people--with histories and motivations and interesting quirks. Add a scary killer, some romance and you have a perfect read!" Susan Mallery, NY Times bestselling author


After a near-death experience, artist Ashley Price is compelled to paint visions of the dead. Then she paints a man buried alive and, recognizing the surroundings, she rushes to save him.

Instead of being grateful to her for rescuing him, Detective Jack Sullivan accuses her of being in league with a serial killer. He swears he will put her behind bars. Except, the more time he spends with her, the more he falls under her spell. Can he trust her, or is he walking into another deadly trap?

Captain Bing's story, DEATHTRAP, is now available!

This romantic suspense is much more of a suspense than romance and a bit on the creepy side. Artist, Ashley Price nearly died when she was ice skating with her daughter and a little neighbour boy. When they fell through the ice, Ashley got her daughter out but couldn't save the boy. She also died but was brought back by paramedics. She was never the same after the accident, suffering from guilt and depression. Because of this, Ashley's father had the girl live with him. Ashley started having visions that she was compelled to paint. The visions were of dead people. She never told anyone about them because she was afraid they would think she was crazy and she wouldn't get her daughter back. When she painted a vision of a man who was still alive and buried on her property, she went and saved him. The man was a cop, Jack Sullivan, and wasn't thankful to Ashley for saving him but thought she was in cahoots with the serial killer, Brady Blackwell, who buried him. Jack was obsessed with finding Blackwell because his sister had been one of Blackwell's victims. This is an unusual story with well developed unusual characters. Serial killers are not unusual but what he did with his victims was and Ashley's visions gave the story a creepy vibe. Even though she, herself, thought she was losing it, she was determined to be strong so she could get her daughter back. What a shame that Jack let finding Blackwell take over his life. Nothing else mattered to him so he didn't really have a life. Once Jack accepted that Ashley wasn't mixed up with Blackwell, he started to have feelings for her and she for him. I must say I was surprised to learn who Blackwell was. I never suspected that person.

Broslin Creek, small Pennsylvania town, normally a quiet, friendly place. Ashley Price is quietly going crazy.. just like her mother did. At least that's what she thinks. It's in her head and the only way to make it go away is to paint. An artist by trade, recently she hasn't done much painting. She grabs her paints and her canvas and paints until she can barely move. Then she really looks at what she's painted. The man doesn't look dead .. and she recognizes that particular boulder next to his body. Maybe, she thinks, the man isn't dead ..maybe this will be unlike the others ...all the other dead bodies she has painted knowing those visions come out of guilt for not saving the life of one very small boy. It's the middle of the night, snow is on the ground, and although she is almost housebound, she runs out, fearing that this time her mind will splinter. The man she finds half buried is a cop ...Jack Sullivan...but he is still alive. She promptly becomes the number one suspect of being the partner of a serial killer that Jack has been trying to catch for several years. Ashley fights telling him that she's going crazy and has visions while at the same time fighting the enormous attraction she feels for him. This is a new author for me. Although, I only occasionally read Romantic Suspense, the book blurb drew me in. The story itself kept me reading. The characters are finely drawn. You can feel the fear rolling off of Ashley and the anger that radiates in Jack's character built upon years of frustration. There are many secondary characters that lend a hand in deceiving the reader until the conclusion of the story. As with any Romantic Suspense, there is some sweet loving that goes on until almost the end and then it just sort of explodes into something more. Although a part of a series, this book functions quite well as a stand-alone. Starting on DEATHWATCH next. My thanks to the author who so graciously furnished a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Deathscape by Dana Marton is fantastic! Jack and Ashley's story is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. This well written book may be short but it's packed with drama, action, heat and humor, a mini sized thriller. I look forward to reading more from Dana Marton soon. Deathscape is book 2 in the Broslin Creek Series, but can be read as a stand alone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Another great book by Dana Marton. The second in her Broslin Creek series it stands completely alone but is set in the same location as the first with familiar secondary characters. I must admit that romantic suspense hasn't usually been at the top of my reading list. But I got the first book free from Amazon and after I read it I had to keep going with the series. This book was just as good for me as the first. The lead characters are both tortured by things from their past and the story kept me guessing until very nearly the end. I can't wait to start reading the next book.

I must say I have to agree with all the positive comments posted about this book on other sites. After reading it myself, I found them to be quite the same as my thoughts. Dana Marton has the art of intriguing and keeping you in suspense til the very end. She had me biting my nails in some scenes, then anxious and sympathetic for Jack and Ashley in others. A -can't put down, page turner- book, for sure. Was easy to read and flowed nicely, good voice. When you thought you knew for sure who the killer was, another possible person looked suspicious of the crime. Enjoyed the romance between Jack and Ashley which didn't overpower the story, but progressed slowly into a nice relationship. I'd say this story was mystery, suspense and romance, in that order of intensity. Dana Marton is a new favorite author on my TBR list. I'm so happy to see she has many published books, which I'll be looking forward to reading next. Definitely keep an eye out for this author for your Romantic/Suspense reading pleasure. I received this book for free for my honest opinion. I give it 4.5 stars

A must read!  You are so involved in this story you feel your there.  Ashley is a painter but only paints dead people.  People that are just turning up dead.  She starts painting a scene of a man buried alive.  She rushes to save him & at first he is anything but grateful.  He thinks she is in with the killer.  Don't want to give away the story but this is so good you don't want to put the book down till it's done.
