Interpreter for the Dead was overall an enjoyable, quick read. A fine introduction to a new series of mysteries, despite being riddled with typos (far exceeding the 5 stated by another reviewer).

I enjoyed the author's accurate depiction of the region where I currently reside. He captured the scenery and the quirks of the residents quite accurately. The dependence upon the deaf community that sprung up around his parents' home and the deaf school was a unique element. Yet it was carried out with

This book started off good. The plot was very intriguing and the story kept me reading for more. It was completely different then what I had expected. I really enjoyed the prologue and wished that there had been more on the father/son relationship. It would have been nice to get to know Henry a bit more, but perhaps that is what made the story so intriguing in the beginning. However,

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

This book kept me entertained for the most part but I wouldn't say it kept me at the edge of my seat. There were lots of grammatical errors which were distracting. I felt like some parts were choppy. I also would have like a bit more back-story about Michael Dane - especially how he ended up being a criminal. There was never really explanation as to why Henry Dane was so awful to his son and then did 360 turnaround. There were so

I enjoyed this book greatly, it was an entertaining and quick read that at times had me laughing outright. Sure, it has some choppy spots. But all in all it was great fun.

Michael Dare is still blaming his parents for being deaf and ruining his childhood. As a high tech identity thief, he discovers that his father passed two months ago. The local community is up in arms over what to do with his valuable farm and land. While Dare is trying to figure out what's in it for him he discovers that not o

This was just okay for me. Don't care to read another.

Dane has been away from home for a long time. His parents were both deaf. His father was very cruel to him so when his mother died, Dane left home and didn't look back. When he finds out his father died he returns home. Something strange is going on and he believes that his father might not have dies in the manner everyone believes.

For some reason I didn't care for this. Not sure if it was the style, plot or what.

This was a quick read and kept my-interest. I'd have liked to learn more about the parents, but I understand that this is the first in a planned series, so maybe we will.
