I read each letter slowly to make sure I understand it perfectly, one day very soon it will be a matter of life and death.... At the end of each letter, after signing her name, there is always one final sentence: Don’t forget to burn this letter. I’ll let you decide if I do....

Completely predictible from the start, every "twist and turn" was predictable, nothing psychological about it it;s fast paced and no gore, thankfully, but it made me feel conned because it sure isn't a "psychological thriller"- i read it all the way through just to see if my suspicions were correct from the start, and they were- all of them.

If you could sum up Secrets of Death in three words, what would they be?

Familiar Riveting Suspense

What other book might you compare Secrets of Death to, and why?

I'd compare it to Corpse Bridge, because the same bridge is mentioned & Cooper & Fry still work in different cities but come together & help one another to solve this mystery thriller.

Have you listened to any of Mike Rogers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not heard his other performances, but in this one he was really good and kept you hooked and interested. Expressive and not monotone in the least.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Fry revisits E-division & helps investigate a "suicide epidemic" stretching a wide distance.

Any additional comments?

the story line Keeps you hooked and in suspense wondering until the end,I do wish that Fry returned to Edendale's E-division permanently.
