5.0 von 5 Sternen Thats My Pepper!!! 16. Oktober 2009
Von Pacey1927 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Dead Man Talking" is the fifth Pepper Martin mystery. The series follows an ex-socialite whose family is suddenly in disgrace (her father is actually in jail) and Pepper must work to make a living for herself. She finds herself getting a job in a cemetary. After a konk on the head she can suddenly see and communicate with...tada! Ghosts!. My favorite things about this series to date has been the interactions with Pepper and her ghosts...and the fact that Pepper just has a huge heart. She is very impetuous and doesn't think dangerous things through but she sure does what she does with her own type of flair. I actually wasn't as impressed by the fourth book as I was by the first three and I was more than pleases to see that "Dead Man Talking" had all the great traits as the first three. Plus I could really root for the ghost in this book as well and that was hard to impossible in book four "Night Of the Loving Dead" Here Pepper is faced with a ghost who hasn't been murdered, like most of her previous customers. This man claims he was framed for the murder of his young and pretty co-worker. So that he can rest in peace and so that his wife (who is still alive)can have closure. Complicating (or rather making this story an absolute win!) is a plot that sees Pepper restoring a nearby cemetary in a reality tv show called "Cemetary Survivor". One team is made up of the town's social elite. The other is a group of parolees who have to do the show as part of their parole arrangements. Guess which team Pepper is put in charge of? It is a riot seeing Pepper work with and come to know the group of outcast parolees. I must go ahead and say right here that I hope they show up again in the series from time to time, they were all too great to say goodbye to! The mystery was well done and it isn't immediately known who the murderer is...but the best part of the Pepper series still remains Pepper herself. If you haven't read one of these books before, go ahead and treat yourself!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great entry in a fun series 21. Oktober 2009
Von Trixie Belle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Casey Daniels is getting more comfortable with her characters and giving them even more dimension. This installment of the series finds Pepper in the midst of a "reality style" television show, where two teams are competing to fix up sections of a dilapidated cemetery. Pepper is hoping to have the "ladies who lunch" on her reality team, but she soon discovers she is to lead a group of recently released convicts. To make matters worse, she is being haunted by a former prison warden who says he was framed for the murder of a young girl. The murder happened over twenty years previously, and the warden wants Pepper to find the real killer so he can rest. Quinn makes another appearance, and there are some surprises to the relationship.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Cemetery survivor?!?!?! 25. März 2010
Von Julie Ruth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This was another great edition in the Pepper saga. We find Pepper months after the shooting incident, where her shoulder is pretty much healed. Pepper is recruited to help clean up the Monroe Cemetery which has seen better days. Not only is Pepper to clean up the cemetery but she is also supposed to restore it in the process, all while being taped for a reality show: Cemetery Survivor. There are two teams, the first is a group of wealthy socialites and the second team consists or Pepper and ex-cons? Makes for quite a few laughs, and of course mystery. The ghost this time is warden from the local jail who says that he was framed for murder and he wants Pepper to clear his name. Lots of craziness in this one. Quinn and Pepper's relationship progresses and hardly any mention of Dan Callahan! I hope his character returns in the next one. I really think Pepper will end up with Dan, anyways if you have loved the previous books this one does not dissapoint.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I *Wanted* to like this, but just couldn't 8. Dezember 2009
Von E. Nolan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have to say that the marketing for this book seemed a bit unclear, and I wasn't sure going in if it were an Urban Fantasy or a "straight" mystery with a few supernatural elements. Either was fine since I like both of those (and since I was fairly sure it was *not* a Paranormal Romance). I suppose that the folks who bought the first four books were clear on what they were getting though.

Anyway, the answer to my question turned out to be "straight mystery with a few supernatural elements". Apart from the fact that Pepper can talk to ghosts, there are no other fantasy elements in the book -- It's implied that voodo dolls *might* work as wards, but that's never proved or disproved. (Though I suppose it's closer to disproved).

Anytime you have a first-person story, how much I enjoy the book is going to depend highly on how likeable (or at least compelling) the narrator is. After that, the plot has to carry the rest. Unfortunately, in this case, I didn't like Pepper, and I thought the plot was awful.

First, I thought Pepper was not very likeable. To start off with, she manipulated her boyfriend through sex and promises of sex and lied to him constantly. Second, her issues with prison seemed a totally artifical imposition to slightly slow down the plot resolution. Third, I never saw anything in her that could inspire the bunch of hard-cases she was saddled with, or that she had any organizational ability that would allow her to pull off a win on the reality show.

As for the plot, there were really two. An 'A' plot of solving a 20 year old murder and a 'B' plot that was sort of a Caddy Shack/Meatballs one of social outcasts competing with blue-bloods. The 'A' plot was in a word, stupid. It relied on an almost complete red-herring which nonetheless was forced to advance the search through sheer coincidence as far as I could tell, and a murderer who was only brought to justice because he was dumb-as-a-post about keeping incriminating evidence around for 20 years. The actual setup of the murder still seems completely implausible to me.

The 'B' plot strains credulity as well. Trying to imagine a local public-tv reality show that becomes wildly popular is hard in the first place. To imagine how Pepper could have been dragged into it with no foreknowledge and without signing umpteen releases is impossible. I also find it impossible to imagine attracting a bunch of local blue-bloods to such an affair on a prolonged basis, or that the whole thing wouldn't have been stopped after the murder of one of the participants. (Which apparently had no effect at all on the shooting, or envinced any discussion with the producers).

I'm sorry, but I just couldn't buy *any* of this book. I would give it one star, but the author can put words together into paragraphs which one-star authors can't..
