Publisher's Summary

Most murders are committed by someone the victim knows. So when Steph Ryder is found dead, D.S. Allie Shenton begins her investigations close to home, starting with Steph’s family and friends.
As each of the suspects scrambles to cover up their actions on that fateful night, Allie focuses on Steph’s husband, Terry. Soon, despite herself, she finds herself powerfully attracted to the ambitious and charming businessman, risking not only her marriage but her job and the investigation itself. As the trail grows hotter, Allie finds that nothing is as it seems: Secrets and lies begin to escalate, and the body count begins to rise. Can Allie uncover the truth before she, too, becomes a victim?
Best-selling author Mel Sherratt has outdone herself with Taunting the Dead, a sexy, gritty, fast-paced police procedural that will set your pulse racing and leave you guessing right until the very end…

Loved It!

What did you like most about Taunting the Dead?

After losing my sight, i have to rely on others to recommend books and it is a bit hit and miss. Taunting the dead was definitely a hit! My sister recommended this author and im so glad she did. Within the first chapter i was hooked, i loved the characters so much i couldn't switch off. In fact i loved it so much i listened to it twice. Not only did Heather Wilds do a great job with the narrating, the story plot had me hooked all the way through with a totally mind melting twist at the end!! Please, Please, Please Mel hurry up with the sequel, cant wait for my next Mel Sherrat fix!!!!

Slow to start with but gained momentum

What did you like best about Taunting the Dead? What did you like least?

I nearly gave up as it was so slow to start with, nothing interesting happened until quite a way into it. It was pretty predictable.
Once it got going and Allie Shenton was in it more then it improved

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Less irrelevant detailed sex

Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Wilds’s performances?

I wouldnt choose to do so but if it was something I wanted to hear then I would do so

Do you think Taunting the Dead needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes definitely, Allie Shenton can be developed into an interesting character

Any additional comments?

I was so close to giving up on this but I am now pleased I persevered. Its not the best crime story I have listened too by a long chalk but it improved as it went along and I ended up ot being able to stop listening
