THE DEAD GAME

Great Writing – Great Characters!

By Ray Miller “Relevant Reviewer”

on March 13, 2015 Format: Kindle Edition

I was absolutely surprised by this book!  

I knew it had some enigmatic mystery and some dark action,

but the author set up the story so well I was happily amazed.  

It starts with a very engaging character,

a young woman who is very well portrayed

in a community, Oasis, Florida.  

The town’s mysteries are maze-like and become deeper

and more sinister as the book progresses.  

This is a very original approach to the concept of

vampires and their existence.  

It’s a well-written mystery and horror story.

SO PROUD OF MY 5 STAR REVIEW I HAD TO SHARE IT AGAIN

I needed a quick pick-me-up today to encourage me to write. I noticed this on my book’s Amazon link and it gave me the needed push. Thank you again!

PROUD OF MY 5 STAR REVIEW

A Great Vampire Mystery Romance, March 27, 2014
  

By  Lee MacRae – See all my reviews This review is from: The Dead Game (Kindle Edition) Author Susanne Leist uses her words well and has written a story filled with the stuff that nightmares are made of. This isn’t your typical mystery that starts slow and builds. Instead, it starts with a bang and a creepy house, careens through twists and turns filled with surprise and suspense and keeps you guessing right to the end. Reclusive town residents, dangerous individuals, strange figures in hooded cloaks, romance along with strange buildings and happenings that make you think you’re on drugs…this story has it all. Highly recommended for those looking for a vampire mystery romance.

A BLANKET OF MIST

 

 

A BLANKET OF MIST

Mist blankets the forest,

covering all from sight.

It hides the dark creatures

so you won’t run from fright.

Darkness will soon descend.

The moon will hide its face.

Run as fast as you can.

Before you get a taste.

Blood flows into the cracks,

left behind from the quake.

Cries shatter the silence,

giving no one a break.

We must wait for the sun

to free us from this place.

Light will lead us away 

from what we fear to face.

An Outstanding Gothic Horror Paranormal Novel!

By Howard Lipman 

February 24, 2015 

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase 

A beachfront town, a haunted mansion, people disappearing or turning up dead–these are the elements of gothic horror, but this unique novel has a more than a few twists. The writing is first-rate,  and the pace is fast. The characters are well-defined, and the plot is imaginative and unpredictable. Linda, Shana, Logan, Todd and others are plagued by the town’s original residents, old family secrets, and more. All kinds of paranormal manifestations  beset the characters. Poe and H.P. Lovecraft would have been proud to have written this novel. From an opulent mansion to a paranormal haunted horror, End House takes the town of Oasis down a frightening path. The mysterious black paper invitations to a party at End House advertising ‘Mysteries to solve’ and ‘Games to Play’ took both the characters and this reader’s imagination on a fascinating journey (review by Howard Lipman, pen name PanOrpheus, author of the ‘Delphic Oracle’ and ‘Tesla’s Tower’ books)

 

THE DEAD


Oasis, Florida, a town of beauty. 

White-sanded beaches and blue water.

Tourists flock to town 

for the famous parties.

The Dead come out at night.

Dark shadows leaving behind

dead bodies on the soft sand.

Are they residents?

Are they tourists? 

Come & find out who they really are.

Author: Susanne Leist

The Book Fair is coming to the town of Oasis on the northern coast of Florida. A dead body washes ashore. The police search through the sand for clues. Where is Agatha Christie when you need her?

I’m a mystery lover. And so is my protagonist, Linda Bennett. She opens a bookstore in Oasis, hoping for fantasy and romance. Instead, she finds herself living in a community filled with secrets.
