Quickie Review: Let the Dead Sleep by Heather Graham


An ancient Roman bust causes Danni Cafferty to confront her paranormal legacy from her father. Michael Quinn both attracts and maddens her, but she loves his dog Wolf. Billie, a former co-worker of her father and current co-worker of hers vouches for Quinn, but Jane the bookkeeper is skeptical. Danni decides Quinn might not be that bad after all. They begin to work together, closely. The bust falls in and out of several crooks hands sewing dissension and leaving a trail of bodies until it reaches the boss. Madness ensues. There is a partnership with the police and support from the unlikely resources of both a voodoo woman and a Catholic priest.

This is the first book in the Cafferty and Quinn series by Heather Graham. It was published March 26, 2013 by Harlequin MIRA. I read the Kindle edition.

The plot moves along quickly and is suspenseful. The romantic subplot is only suspenseful to a point. Saying more than that would be a spoiler. It takes place in New Orleans. The history of the city and the surrounding area that is mentioned is interesting. The characters are interesting as well. Each one has his or her own quirks. It makes them seem all the more real. All in all it is a good book. I would particularly recommend it for people who enjoy paranormal mystery and romantic suspense. I gave this book 4 stars for originality and keeping my attention. Now onto book two!
