Dead Asleep Jamie Freveletti

Dead Asleep Jamie Freveletti

This is my first read for Jamie Freveletti, but not my last. I immediately was impressed with her leading lady for the series, Emma Caldridge, a chemist who owns a new, struggling business in her field of expertise, but also is a freelance operative for Darkview, a private security group about which I am sure there is lots more to know! It turns out for this story, she acts in both positions!

But that is not surprising since Voodoo was involved!

Actually, it includes much more, but Freveletti does a great job in molding everything together, creating a wild thriller which will keep you involved almost on each page!

Emma was on a search for minerals that would help to reduce the aging process, but quite a number of people were opposed to her activities! First, she's traveled to a remote island that is right in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle...

And the minerals she's looking for are from what is called the blue holes, which is a place that none of the island residents will visit--you got it, there is some type of monster in the holes that pulls boats to the bottom!

Actually, readers never do discover what phenomenon happens--all part of the Bermuda Triangle mystique, of course. But it certainly is something there since we see it capture first the boat on which Emma is working...and then the boat from which a killer is after her!

His name is Joseph--but he's not the first man who chases Emma and that man is a lot more scarier since he's holding a machete, his eyes focus toward the sky, and he can only move if told exactly what to do!And he has a wicked priestess controlling him...

Of course, neither one of these men are the man who is truly responsible for wanting her dead!

Because in addition to using the minerals from the blue holes for makeup, someone has already used the material to make something that is harmful--and mercenaries from all over the world want that new product!

Now if that wasn't enough, let me tell you that this island is inhabited by many very rich people. One of them is a rock musician who purchased the island under a different name in order to enjoy it in seclusion. But when he came to visit Emma, needing her professional help, she was immediately caught off guard...

Having heard the rumors about Rex Rain, she knew they were all into drugs and drinking. But when the leader said he had never seen the powder that was on the table near one of his band members, who had been asleep for over 24 hours, she knew she had to help!

And that was the first individual on the island who was infected...And Emma now had to try to figure out what was causing the sleep...

Because it was spreading!Soon the island was quarantined!

Action packed, but full of potential issues that must be explored--voodoo, drugs, murder, monsters! Wow!

What a tropical paradise to visit!

I loved this one... Such fun to move from one scene to another when you never know what is going to happen next!

The end was almost anti-climatic given the range of high points throughout this gem...But the ending was also quite satisfactory!

Highly recommended!

    I enjoyed this book so much. I love the heroine-she's super smart and athletic-no shrinking violet here. The mystery/suspense is so well written you find yourself holding your breath at times. I have to admit, I'm really enjoying the building (sexual) tension between the main characters. It's definately a slow build-taking place over the series as opposed to being resolved by the end of the book, but it's all the more fun for it. If you like smart mystery /suspense with a little science mixed in, great characters and writing this book and series is for you.

    This is the 4th book in Jamie Freveletti's series about Emma Caldridge. Just like the last three, the action never stops. You'll want to space some time out for this book because you won't want to let it down. The characters that we have loved in the last books are back, and Ms. Freveletti does a wonderful job of developing the characters, really allowing us to root and cheer for Emma. If you enjoy action and want a clever plot different from anything you've read before, I highly recommend this book.

    I must say that I have been a fan of Jamie Freveletti ever since I was introduced to her first novel, Running From the Devil. Dead Asleep is the 4th in her Emma Caldridge series and as in the past, did not disappoint. I have come to expect non stop action, well developed and likeable characters, and exotic settings, and again, all were here for my enjoyment. Emma is one of the few strong female leads you will find in the action/adventure genre. She is a brilliant chemist, ultra marathoner and tough as nails. Went she gets into a tough spot, she is capable of getting herself out of it. In Dead Asleep, Emma is again teamed with Cameron Sumner, and together, they encounter international arms dealers, a medical epidemic, voodoo practioners, a huge tropical storm and an odd array of temporary residents on the Caribbean island of Terra Cay.

    I have become a Jamie Freveletti fan. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only regret I have is that I read this book first - the latest she has written. This book stands alone but there are earlier books with the same characters. The writing is crisp, doesn't get in the way of the story which is fast paced and interesting. Jamie develops her characters well without interrupting the flow of the story. If you are looking for a new author to read, I highly recommend Jamie Freveletti. Got to the end of the book and wanted more.
