    Description

    They say a painting can have a life of its own...

    In the case of Ghosts in the Mind by Henry Sebastian Hubert, that’s more than just an expression. This painting is reputed to come to life - and to bring death. The artist was a friend of Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, joining them in Switzerland during 1816, "the year without a summer". That was when they all explored themes of horror and depravity in their art....

    Now, almost 200 years later, the painting appears in New Orleans. Wherever it goes, death seems to follow. Danielle Cafferty and Michael Quinn, occasional partners in solving crime, are quickly drawn into the case. They begin to make connections between that summer in Switzerland and this spring in Louisiana. Danni, the owner of an eccentric antiques shop, and Quinn, a private detective, have discovered that they have separate but complementary talents when it comes to investigating unusual situations.

    Trying to blend their personal relationship with the professional lives they’ve stumbled into, they learn how much they need each other. Especially as they confront this work of art - and evil. The people in the portrait might be dead, but something seems to wake them and free them to commit bloody crimes. Cafferty and Quinn must discover what that is. And they have to destroy it - before it destroys them.

    Best book ever

    I totally loved this book. If you love a bit if history. Legend - a bit of scary romance and fun - then you will love this book. It starts off in Switzerland in the early 1800’s when Mary Shelly and her group were writing ghost stories. She wrote Frankenstein. The fictional character was an artist who paints - a very scary painting. This painting causes the group to travel back to Geneva to learn the history of this wretched entry into the ghost game. Enjoy. I would give this 10 stars if I could.

    This is my favorite Heather Graham book to date

    Where does Waking the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is definitely one of my favorites in this genre. I'm from New Orleans so I appreciate the setting. I recognize where they are. The only thing she really gets wrong is the bit about sweet tea. I lived in New Orleans my whole life and no body asked me for sweet tea. It is not a THING in NOLA. When you get to GA, SC, NC then you start hearing about sweet tea. People in NOLA drink strong coffee and lots of liquor. The characters in this book are so likeable, believable and smart.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Waking the Dead?

    When Danni starts sleep walking and walks down the staircase to start painting while she is asleep.

    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to the other Heather Graham books. I really like Natalie Ross's performance. She gets the different voices perfectly.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, I don't do that. I listen in my car and sometimes at night lying in bed.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope there will be a lot more Cafferty and Quinn books. I like them a lot better than the Krewe of Hunters.

    That's not Scottish.

    I'm not sure what accent the person reading is attempting for Billy, it's indescribable and definitely NOT Scottish. It really takes away from the reading. If the same person reads the next book, I'll be taking a pass.

    Even better than Let the Dead Sleep!

    Would you listen to Waking the Dead again? Why?

    I would listen to both the stories in the Cafferty and Quinn series again, particularly if Ms. Graham is going to continue the series. There was enough going on in each story that a re-listen would help.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Although I did guess the villain and the clue about the real painting, there were enough red herrings that I still had questions about several of the characters until close to the end.

    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    I love Natalie Ross's narration in all her performances. Her female and male characters are seamless and don't distract from the story at all. She does a great Creole accent as well.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Watch out for the fog, they strike when you can't see.

    Any additional comments?

    I had been feeling unresolved about the ending of Let the Dead Sleep and was quite happy that the story line took up very soon after the previous one. Both hero and heroine seemed to make much more mature decisions in this book.

    disappointed

    even though I was irritated by the way an obvious clue was dropped them it took the main characters 3 or 5 chapters to figure it out the rest of the story was well written and interesting so I bought the second in the series and this time it changed from minor irritation to a greater one I will not be buying the third.

    Fascinating, attention holding.

    For an ADD person I had to finish it. A first for me. A little macabre with a historic twist. Hold the listeners attention with all the characters voices.

    Haunting depiction!

    This has to be one of Heather Graham's most imaginative stories. I loved the look into each of the characters backgrounds. The historic shout outs to the great artists of a bygone era. A captivating look into artistry, no matter how horrific!

    I have been pleasantly surprised

    I have always enjoyed Heather Graham's books. This series has added some panache to her usual stories

    Haunted Paintings

    I love this story!! I've always felt that there are some paintings that are just plain creepy!! Here's a great play on that
