Pop to the present and a serial killer is loose aiming his hatred and revenge on one Dr. Ann Yang, county medical examiner for Bucks County, PA. Here the book has the edge of a thriller. Slide back to 1961 for another story but it is related. Move on to the present and there are more deaths. Ann finds a diary. A diary with weird things that happen. Could Ann have lived many lifetimes and does she want to explore reincarnation? You have a slight fantasy and you may want to take notes because there is A LOT going on.
OK, keep reading. Jump back to 1902 when the diary takes place. Someone dies. There are some elements of erotica. More details. Yes, I kept reading. And no, I didn't cheat and look at the end of the book like I wanted to. So much is packed into this story. Intrigue, some ideas that are original, a possible romance, gore, sex, ghostly elements, a who's who, and a killer who is revealed at the end. And it was a surprise for me.
This story sort of reminded me of THE MIRROR by Natalia Lincoln with the storyline constantly flipping back and forth from the present to some part of the past. This can be confusing. It had some original ideas but it was too long. At 203 pages it shouldn't have felt this way but it did. Also, the f-bomb is dropped frequently so if this is not to your liking be aware.
From what I understand Ms. Jameson is currently writing a sequel. I would read it if I could borrow it from the library.Read more ›
The second time I was more absorbed by the story itself and ongoing thread about past-life regression. What a plot! It reminded me of a dark, murderous version of Razor's Edge, in that the characters keep coming back through generations to lead different lives. But in Razor's Edge, the character was trying to transcend his past lives. In Dead On, the character is playing out a generations-long cat-and-mouse game, with murder the never-ending ambition.
I enjoy reading ready-made formula books once in a while but for the most part, I like books that have an edge, offer something different, that show imagination and flair. I've read a few of this author's books and each time was wowed by their edginess and stubborn refusal to conform to a single, predetermined genre. And the diversity of genres! Zombie comedy, romance, murder mystery...! Jameson isn't on the NY Times best-seller list yet probably because she isn't a one-size fits all author. Even her historical romance, To Tame a Rogue (so far her only novel to fit into a single, traditional genre), offers the reader everything you can hope for in that genre...with a little of Jameson's quirkiness thrown in. But back to Dead On. Read it. At least once.

... and the hyphen-ated words are too distract-ing to read any further! Is there some sort of reason-ing behind this??!Published on July 18, 2013 by JEH
This was certainly not the book I was expecting. It was an effort just to get through the weeds of intentional confusion. This could have been a good book. But alas, no.Published on March 11, 2013 by One Hitchcock
