Publisher Description

I beg the young woman to breathe as I desperately try to save her life. I catch a glimpse of her face and it’s like looking in a mirror. We have the same chestnut hair, the same heart-shaped face. She is gripping rose petals, like she had been holding a bouquet. Wake up, please, you could be my sister…


My mother disappeared when I was a child, and my father refused ever to speak about her. When I’m called to the scene of a crime and look into victim Ann Hart’s pretty face, it sends shivers up my spine. I’ve never met her before, but we could be related.


Am I investigating the murder of my own little sister?


I know I will never rest until I find the person who did this, but it seems that Ann’s killer is not done yet. First someone breaks into my apartment when I am asleep. And then he sends me a bouquet of blood-red roses just like the ones Ann was clutching…


I’m leading the case, but am I also the next victim?


Just when I think I’ve got a handle on Ann’s killer, he strikes again. I am standing in the freezing morgue as the white sheet is pulled back. It’s Bert Gibbons, my close friend and a local journalist who was investigating Ann’s death. I know it’s a warning: don’t come any closer or you’ll be next.


Can I catch this deadly killer or am I just a dead girl walking?

A good start to a new series

Dead Girl Walking is the first book in a new series featuring Jessie Novak, a Emergency Room Triage Nurse as its lead. Set in Boston Massachusetts, the story follows Jessie’s quest for answers after a beautiful woman is bought into the emergency room, with a gunshot. Who would do this? Why?

The story has been well plotted, executed and with Roberta Gately bringing her own knowledge as a nurse to the table, this makes for an interesting medical drama crossed with a crime thriller. The mystery itself plays out well and kept me on my toes and while there are no big shocks or surprises, still made for an entertaining read.

Jessie’s character has been written very well. She is smart, gutsy and has good instincts. While there were no big surprises, there were plenty of distractions for Jessie, first and foremost, her love life. Can Jessie find the find balance in her life? And a killer?

What I like most about this book and what initially drew me to it, was that Jessie is an Emergency Room Triage Nurse and not a police detective as is normally the case with these types of stories. Her role puts her front and centre into the thick of things and brings a refreshing change, with a different point of view.

Dead Girl Walking is a strong start to a new series. The prologue kicks things off in spectacular fashion and from there it hits the ground running, never letting up on its frantic pace until the final page. The story is interesting, the characters are real and relatable, the writing is sharp and I look forward to seeing the direction the series takes next.
