Annie Solomon is not a popular or well-known author. I have discovered her by accident some time ago, read One Deadly Sin and enjoyed it a lot. Now I have read another of her books, known even less than the previous one and with only 95 ratings (including my own). I definitely wasn't disappointed.

Gillian is an artist who makes the photos of herself posed as a victim of murder. Her aim is to attract the killer of her mother and now with the exhibition of her works in her home town it seems that

In a word: gripping. This one had me from page one all the way to the end. Read it in almost one sitting. Only took a break long enough to sleep for a few hours!

Like my first Solomon book, there's a cop in this one. Though I don't think Ray is quite the hunk that One Deadly Sin used to keep us turning the pages, Gillian was a gal to watch. She was strong, yet vulnerable-- stubborn, yet yielding when necessary. She had a past that she thumbed her nose at rather than hiding from, and in an interes

It was a thrilling read. The case an interesting one. The heroine was a bit much to take on. Somehow I couldn't follow her reasoning. Also, as sometimes is the case with thrillers, there was too much trouble and heartache in one place/family to be believable. The whole Maggie sideline story was unnecessary, I think.

Annie has spun a great suspense in Dead Shot. The premise is creepy and intriguing. A fellow MCRW member, Annie is an inspiration to us all. This book is her first set in Nashville. It is fun to read about the local haunts....while it adds to the story for me...it wouldn't be a distraction to someone not from here. The twists and turns keep you turning the pages until the spectacular end. Good job Annie!

Ok book. It was well written, but the story and the main character fell short in my opinion. She seemed like a flighty 20-something always wanting to party, hardly a serious professional photographer mentality or a victim of a homocide.

Maybe 3.25. Read it for the Nashville setting--Pretty accurate for a Noo Yawka (what the author calls herself). Liked the writing in that I didn't really notice it and the plot really moves.

The idea was great, the book was good, but it has one steamy scene that could have been left out. That is why it recieved a 2 star. If no scene like that, I would have put it at a 3 or 4

I'm pretty sure I read this, but I don't feel like going back and checking. It deserves either 3 or 4 stars.
