About the Author

Whenever her husband is asked to describe her in one word, he usually says "strange." While other kids watched cartoons, Sandy waited with baited breath for Shock Theatre. While other young women subscribed to Cosmopolitan, Sandy subscribed to Dr. J. Allen Hynek's "UFO Reporter." Her Sam Casey series features a detective who can hear the dead speak. (Think "Medium" with a Native American twist. A fan of Stephen King and Nancy Drew, she was able to combine both of her loves in her cross-genre mysteries.

I enjoyed this book so much! After about 15 pages, I couldn't put my Nook down. Had to read until the end! The story line was great. Moved along at a nice, clipped pace. The characters are well thought out and you get to know their background more as the story rolls on. There was romance, but it wasn't sappy or forced. I will be purchasing/reading the next 3 books in this series!

Good story and hard to put down! Ready for book two and to see what Sam is up to next. Love the Native American aspects of the storyline. I think i will enjoy this series. New author to follow!

This is the sort of book/series I was hoping to find when I bought my Nook. Full Moon Publishing understands that e-books should have both the quality of paper books, and be cheaper than paper books. The author and Full Moon deliver on this in spades. As I read this book, I could only be amazed at the quality for a debut work, at a 99 cent price point. I have since bought the others in the series, and Tooley only gets stronger and stronger as writer. Highly recommended if you enjoy paranormal mysteries.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Just enough suspense, a little mysticism and enough romance to make it quite enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone. I will look for other books by this author.

This book has 389 pages. It is a fast read. The violence and sex are not extremely detailed. There is child abuse, spousal abuse, murders and an alternate religion. There are crooked politician. Some issues are brought up, but never addresssed farther. At times the writing is choppy and in a few places it seems as several pages or even chapters are left out. This really threw me for a loop. I went back and read, rechecked page numbers and chapters, but the information was simply not there. Other than this the story is very good. The main characters feel stiff and do not show much emotion. I liked the native American aspect of this book very much. It is the first book of a series, has a conclusion and leaves enough undisclosed hooks to slip seamlessly into the next book. I would let 16 year olds read this book. It is for roosters as well as chicks. There is some romance but it doesnottske over the story. Very enjoyable. AD

I have just bought four more of S.D. Tooley's books and am looking forward to curling up with them all. Thoroughly enjoyed "When the Dead Speak" - well written, great descriptions and dialogue and exciting forward movement throughout! Love the paranormal aspect.
