Publisher's Summary

Ella Broden is living a double life.

By day, Ella works as a buttoned-up attorney on some of the city's most grueling cases. By night, she pursues her passion for singing in the darkest clubs of Manhattan.

No one knows her secret, not even Charlotte, the younger sister she practically raised. But it seems she's not the only one in the family with something to hide. When Charlotte announces she's sold her first novel, Ella couldn't be more thrilled...until she gets a call that her sister's gone missing.

Ella starts investigating with the help of Detective Gabriel Velasquez, an old flame in the NYPD, and what she finds is shocking. If art imitates life, then her sister's novel may contain details of her real-life affairs. And any one of her lovers could be involved in her disappearance.

Desperate to bring Charlotte home, Ella works through her list of suspects, matching fictitious characters with flesh-and-blood men. But will it be too late to save the sister she only thought she knew?

    "Cleverly written"

    Enjoyed both the writing and the excellent narration. This book has an interesting way of telling the story from the murdered victim, to the narrator sister to the murderer themselves!

    "Great story and narration!!!"
    What did you love best about Dead Certain?

    It has a fast moving plot and keeps you riveted right from the start. The characters develop nicely and the different perspectives give you great insight into what everyone is thinking.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Certain?

    When the killers perspective comes into play.


    What about Erin Bennett’s performance did you like?

    She has a wonderful voice and plays out the different characters very well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    She wrote about her own murder ....


    Any additional comments?

    Adam Mitzner is blossoming into a top of the live mystery writer. This is definitely his best yet and I can't wait for what comes next.

    Story
    "Oddly Mixed Up Writing Hurts Book"

    The first half or so of 'Dead Certain' grabbed me. But then Adam Mitzner poked his POV into other people's heads and I reeeeely wish he hadn't. Perhaps if his deadline wasn't so pressing, or an urge to show-boat some writing pyrotechnics didn't divert his good sense... Well maybe this could have continued its journey toward 5 stardom. Instead the suspense went flaccid. And for some reason the editors allowed him to insert a totally mystical chapter written in the POV of a ghost!

    Can't recommend this thing even though Mitzner's written some fine books. And even though Erin Bennett does a fine job of trying to save all of this scrambled stuff.

    Save your credit for something better, maybe by Mitzner.

    "Good book to listen in the car"

    Some books are so intense or gripping, that paying attention to the road and traffic might become a problem. in this case, the story is good enough, well written and well narrated to make for an entertaining commute without making it unsafe. Also, unlike with some other books, I never had a problem turning off the car and leaving the story at pretty much any point. Helps with being on time to work, when you are not glued to the story to the point where you sit on the office parking lot waiting for the end of the chapter...

    "To Stare a Kller in the Face"

    Ok....I must say Adam Mitzner...? Wow you did this book!!!!
    Erin Bennett you 🎸 Rocked that narration like none other.
    i love Thrillers and this was as erie as the Rapper Tupac Shakur writing a song ... predicting his own death. The central character in this novel is Charlotte a freelance College writer. She is offfered a book deal for a novel she wrote depicting her own death . She disappears after handed over the novel to her older more responsible sister Erin, who is a lawyer.
    This book will have you on the edge of your seat trying to find out which characters are real life and what is Charottes imagination. While leading a double life of her own her sister Erin reads her book to try to sault out where her sister has disappeared too and finds out so secrets that may cause her own demise.
    This is definitely an awesome summer read. I don't want to give you too many Clues because this Audiobook is well worth your purchase.

    "Great story and great performance!"

    Adam Mitzner just gets better and better. This book is absorbing from the first word and just keeps on going. The denouement is a surprise (I didn't see it coming), which is always a good thing. If you're looking for an interesting book that is narrated to perfection, this is it!

    "Good story, good narration"

    The ending was predictable, but I still found myself interested in how everything would tie together. The narrator was easy to listen to, and the story went quickly.

    "Riveting and Intriguing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Certain to be better than the print version?

    Since I felt this was both well written and performed it is hard to say. There were many times I took a longer path to find out what was going to happen next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I had empathy for the lead characters so no real favorite.


    What about Erin Bennett’s performance did you like?

    I like her voice, tempo, and overall performance. She gave different voices to characters so make it very easy to know whose voices and characters the author was talking about.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this reading/book so much I will be looking for more by the author and the narrator.I can recommend this audio book to anyone!
