This was an interesting story. It was a skillfully crafted idea with superb pacing and raw style that I found easy to read.
There were a few little hiccups that kept me from giving this a five star review, though. One such instance was when John Smith was described as smelling death creaking from the floorboards. The perhaps unintentional synaesthesia removed me from the flow pf the story. There were a few other minor errors here and there bit, overall, I really dug this. The end was not what I e

There are a lot of free books out there. Some good and some very, very bad. This one was great. I wish I could remember who recommended this one. It had to come recommended, because I don't go looking for free books any more. Too much I actually want to read and not enough hours in a week.

Carl is an artist when it comes to bringing the dead to life. Actually, it's his job to make a corpse look it's best for the family and loved ones when they come for the viewing. His boss, Xavier would call hi

In Brandon Ford’s Dead Heart, his protagonist, Carl, is an artist. He makes the dead beautiful in their final rest. It is important to be stunning, handsome, well at least not dead looking when all our friends come by for that final goodbye. And Carl is the expert, but Carl also has a hobby. He delivers the bodies of the dead to the highest bidder for the purpose of… Let’s just say, here I’ll let you use your imagination and whatever you think it is, believe me it’s worse.

What price would you pay in order to spend one final night with a celebrity? For one worker in the funeral home where the body of a well-known celebrity had been brought, the price couldn't be high enough. Arranging one last night with someone was a side business that Carl took pleasure and pride in until the night it cost him more than he'd ever imagined.

Very quick read. The story was well written, had just enough description to draw the reader into the story and flowed smoothl

At first I was kind of repulsed by where I thought this story was going. Even as I was about to get grossed out, I did recognize that I was being grossed out by exceptional writing. It was believable, and very well done. The truly scary thing is, I think the scheme going on in this book is probably really going on all over the place, which makes me want to be cremated instantly.

Great story. Scary, creepy, even romantic in an odd sort of way. I've definitely decided on cremation over burial, as soon as possible after I've been declared dead. Just in case. Loved it. 5 big stars.

Holy obsession, Batman! Mr. John Smith was a complete nutter. Almost felt bad for Carl, though. Almost. And I can only imagine what Xavier's going to think/do when he discovers what happened. Crazy stuff, man. Crazy stuff.

This was a taboo BDSM challenge book read. Subject: necrophilia. Story line involved selling rights to famous people's dead bodies for sex. It deserved the subject category.
