A really great review of Play Dead has just been published in RANSOM NOTES, the mystery reader newsletter published by Barnes and Noble: “If Play Dead were a poker hand, it would undoubtedly be a royal flush.” Positive reviews have been coming in this month all over the place. Booklist (the journal of the American Library Association) is highly recommending the book, writing: “Established contemporary horror author Arnzen serves up a chilling brew of gritty dialogue and hard-boiled, James -Ellroy-style action that, by means of unexpected plot twists, never fails to keep readers alert and guessing.” Kind readers are also already posting great reviews of the book on sites like Amazon.com, where you get the book at a good price. This book is a somewhat experimental horror novel, so I’m very excited that readers and reviewers alike are enjoying it! If you’ve already read it, please consider posting a short review someplace to help spread the word and share your thoughts.
