I love it. Keeps me interested from the beginning right to the end. I enjoy the way she tell a story and keeps you wanting more. She has become my favorite author as of now.

Despite the fact that I was suprised to discover after beginning it that this book was not the first part of a series--the dust jacket says nothing about the previous books--I was able to enjoy it as a stand-alone novel. There were details about the main characters that I'm sure I missed because I haven't read the other books, but it didn't impact my reading enjoyment.
The story is fast-paced and the suspense builds with each turn of the page. Ms. Spindler kept me guessing right to the very end.
Watch Me Die is a well written fast-paced and suspenseful thriller. It is set in post Katrina New Orleans surrounding Mira Gallier, an artist who restores stained glass windows. A murder is committed at the site of one of her restored windows and the window is vandalized with the message: "He Will Come to Judge the Living and the Dead". Mira's becomes the prime suspect in the string of murders that follow. The murders have a religious twist to them and scripture is referenced many times. It's ac ...more

Let me take #4's review to say I LOVE the Stacy Killian series. It was amazing, I zoomed through it and couldn't stop reading.

Love my Erica Spindler!!! Mystery, suspense, fast paced, intricate characters & plot twists & turns that keep you guessing til the very end!!!
I really have forgotten how much I love Erica Spindler's books. Especially some of her characters. I can't wait for her next book to come out in February.
I thought this was a great read. Gripping and powerful. I enjoyed the combination of historical information regarding New Orleans and its culture, with the depth of characters and tangly webs embedded in various story lines (which did not overpower one another). A little bit of steamy romance, scandal, and crime all in one! Job well done. This was my first Erica Spindler book but I am totally planning for more.

Erica Spindler has long been one of my favorite authors and she reminds me why with her newest release. Set in New Orleans, Spindler captures both the destruction and the spirit of the location. The characters are well-developed and made me care what happened to them. As the plot builds, so does the suspense. And just when you think you know something, a twist takes you in a whole new direction.

Some of the characters in this one carry on from earlier novels. But this is easily read as a stand-a
Daniel Rudge
A good summer read that is both a good whodunit and good thriller. The focus of this book is Mira Gallier, who restores stained glass windows that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, the same storm the claimed the life of the husband she idolized. As it turns out, one of her restorations is in a church where the head-Priest is murdered and a religious saying is spray-painted across the stained glass windows Mira has restored. Soon, others who know or who have recent encounters with Mira are mur ...more
A tale of recovery and ghosts and memories after Hurricane Katrina. Speaking from personal experience with the loss of a loved one, it is often hard to let go of the past and move on with the future. Being hunted down and terrorized at the same time is unimaginable. This was a good read that kept suspicion moving from one character to the next.
Stacy Green
I started this book yesterday and finished it last night! Spindler's writing has a nice flow and is easy to follow, and she does a great job making you invest in her characters. The mystery in this one demanded to be solved, and I couldn't go to bed until I finished. Would definitely rec to mystery and suspense lovers.
This author is new to me however the synopsis intrigued me, the book turned out to be very interesting the characters story lines were written well. You think the book is all about a wife losing her husband but it's way more than than that, murder, mystery and love....
Set against the backdrop of post-Katrina New Orleans, this page-turning psychological suspense novel had me biting my nails throughout.

Protagonist Mira Gallier, whose husband Jeff died during Katrina, restores stained glass windows—in churches and in homes—and had just finished restoring the windows at Sisters of Mercy. Now detectives Spencer Malone and Tony Sciame are at the scene of the brutal slaying of Father Girod, surrounded by the destruction of those stained glass windows—by Graffiti.


Quick Summary…
Mira Gallier is a stained glass artist. She has tried to rebuild her life after losing her beloved husband Jeff during Hurricane Katrina. It has been six years of hard work and therapy and she is almost there. Then rather suddenly her world begins to crumble. Evil seems to be everywhere…especially on her doorstep. An old friend returns and Mira finds out that her life was not what she believed it to be. People are being killed…one by one…and biblical sayings are attached to them. T
Watch Me Die by Erica Spindler is one of those books you’ll pick up and struggle to put down, I certainly did. I enjoyed every minute, well nearly every minute, more on that later but finishing the book at 2am is testament – sorry couldn’t resist the pun - to the author’s talents and incontrovertible hold she had on me! I’ve been meaning to read a book set in New Orleans and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina for some time now and when the opportunity came in the shape of Watch Me Die I jumped a ...more
A Twisted, Taunting Thriller
Six years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast and raged over New Orleans like a furiously spurned lover. The levees that held at bay the water surrounding The Crescent City could only withstand her onslaught for so long before giving way and spewing forth its deadly flood waters. What started as a natural disaster ended up a national catastrophe of biblical proportion. It left ragged scars across the landscape of the south and soul-deep wounds in the heart
Mira Gallier is a stained glass artist making beautiful stained glass windows and panels. She knows how to mix colours well and produces the most brilliant or serene coloured pieces depending on what her client requests. One of her most beautiful pieces of work was the twelve glass panels that measured twelve feet by five feet that depicted a scene from the life of Christ on each panel. These were installed at Sisters of Mercy Catholic church.

Mira’s husband, Jeff, was killed during hurricane Kat
I like this author but for some reason I just could not read this book. I have tried on three separate occasions now. I finally gave the book up as each time I don't seem to be making any progress. I was not intrigued by anything happening in the story. In fact, it seemed to be marshmallow fluff. There was not much of a strong substance. It sounds good but when you actually try it, it is not that satisfying. I could not tell you what this book was all about and I just put this book down for the ...more
WATCH ME DIE was the most intense book I have read in a long time. Erica Spindler definitely knows how to create frightening and twisted tales of suspense, while allowing me to discover deep heroic characters that leave me begging for a sequel. I read a lot and rarely find a book that keeps me from being able to function in other areas of my life. This was one of those books that once started, could not be put down and trumped other necessities such as eating and sleeping. It was literally a nai ...more
This is the first book I've read in this series. Loved the setting though I've never been to New Orleans - a little of the devastation of Katrina was brought home in this book. Well written - though I confess that I guessed successfully. Usually that would be a let down but because it was so well done I felt proud that I had figured it out.

Erica Spindler does a superb job with her novel Watch Me Die.

After losing her thought-to -be perfect husband during Hurricane Katrina, Mira's life was in a downward spiral. Finally, Mira felt she was gaining control once again until her past comes back to haunt her. Mira, an artist by trade, restored stained-glass windows in a church and now those windows have been ruined, and the priest from the parish murdered. Mira was devastated by this, but it turned out this was only the beginning. Others
As always, Erica Spindler really keeps your mind going and going, trying to figure out who the bad person is in her novels! This one is no exception, however, I think this one had me sitting on the edge of my seat more than I usually do which is good because that's what makes a good novel as far as I'm concerned. This one is sick! This one is scary!!! This one is very good!!!! Enjoy!
Kathy Halverson
Great story set in New Orleans, Catholic church, stained glass windows, and Katrina. The sisters of mercy, the Malone family of cops and a scene reminiscent of mother in the fruit cellar.

A wild tale of hair turning curves. I loved it!!! Reminded me of my Catholic upbringing and how the demon can make you crazy.
This was an enjoyable fast paced thriller, set in post Katrina New Orleans, five years after the storm. The protagonist, an artisan who makes stained glass windows is still unable to move on from the loss of her husband to the hurricane, and when a serial killer emerges, all of the victims are somehow related to her.
This book really keeps you guessing. I had several theories as the pages turned. Ultimately, the character Mira must face her past, and the killer.

Erica Spindler never fails to disappoint. Every book you read of hers she puts you in the detective seat. You are always trying to figure out who did it. Your mind is set and then she hits you with a twist! Watch me die is a great book with lots of twists. I say you read it and see if you can help Discover who the Judgement Day Killer is.
I got this part of a Christmas gift. I really liked the book and how she was able to put religion in murder mystery. I hated what the husband done. :(
Kathleen Scott
A who done it and it kept you guessing all through the book.
Reading Watch Me Die was a like a hurricane. You knew that something bad was coming, then you are in the middle of craziness, and then it passes with you saying wow. I have to say again wow.

I really enjoyed this book and please forgive my goofy description and the hurricane analogy.

I liked the characters, the pace, and the suspense of who was doing the killing. So many thoughts running through my head that I was dizzy. I loved this book and appreciated reading a suspense novel that kept my inte
