Kurzbeschreibung

TWO STRANGERS
Cameron Dawson's got a past he can't seem to shake, but he's hoping to change that. He's moved back home to Faith, New Mexico and taken a job as assistant sheriff. What he doesn't realize is that his newest nightmare's about to begin. Strange things are happening. People are disappearing, and for others, it's far worse …

DISTANCE SEPARATES THEM
Miles away in Albuquerque, Kyle Bancroft's life is spinning out of control. She's seeing, hearing, and dreaming things she can't explain: Flashbacks to World War II and an eerie hospital ward with locked doors, empty gurneys, and guttural screams. To make matters worse, a ghostly green-eyed girl is complicating her visions with an urgent message: Time is running out.

A DARK SECRET CONNECTS THEM
Kyle's otherworldly encounters are driving her straight toward Faith … and right into Cameron's life. The body count is rising, the pressure is mounting, and the clock is ticking as they rush to uncover a dangerous secret hiding just below the surface of this all-American town—one that's threatening to destroy Faith and everyone in it. A secret they must hunt down quickly … even if it costs them their own lives.

A VOICE FROM THE GRAVE WILL DRAW THEM TOGETHER

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Andrew E. Kaufman is a freelance writer and author living in Southern California, along with his Labrador Retrievers, a horse, and a very bossy Jack Russell Terrier (who, incidentally, thinks she owns the place). His new novel, While the Savage Sleeps, a forensic paranormal mystery, takes place in the fictional town of Faith, New Mexico. It is currently available on Kindle, where it has remained in the top ten of Amazon's Bestseller's List.After receiving his journalism and political science degrees at San Diego State University, Andrew began his writing career as an Emmy-nominated writer/producer, working at KFMB-TV, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, then at KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. For more than ten years, he produced special series and covered many nationally known cases, including the O.J. Simpson Trial. He also has written stories for the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the most recent of which is due out later this year.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spannend und gut schrieben 8. Oktober 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mir hat der Name Andrew E. Kaufman nichts gesagt - das Cover und die kurze Inhaltsangabe waren aber interessant und so habe ich mir das Buch als Kindle-eBook gekauft. ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. Das Buch ist sehr spannend geschrieben und verführt als Page-Turner zum Lesen in einem Rutsch. Die Figuren sind gut beschrieben und werden ausreichend detailliert eingeführt. Die Geschichte macht zunächst den Eindruck, dass es in die Richtung "Paranormal", oder "Fantastisch" abwandern könnte, was sich aber dann als Irrweg entpuppt :)

Sehr zu empfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen not everyone's thing 11. Januar 2014
Von SK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Rated this book with 5 stars because it's really good and I was often awake the whole night to finish this book. The writing style isn't bad, but this is not for the weak-nerved because the author described the murders very accuratly, thus it can be a bit brutal (even for a psychic thriller). All in all the book is good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Kindleobsessed Review 20. August 2010
Von Misty Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A few weeks ago I asked my readers to "give me some sappy book suggestions." After 20 or so books with no emotional reaction I was starting to fear my sensitivity level was pretty much at a 0, (which I'm sure comes as no surprise) but after checking the list, and even reading several chapters from some of the suggestions I got... my tear ducts were still on lock-down, until this book. Who in the world would have thought a paranormal thriller (which reads a lot like a forensic thriller) would be the one to unclog the faucet.

Cameron Dawson just wants a little peace and quiet. Hoping to escape his tortured past, he moves back to his childhood home in Faith, but when bodies start piling up at the morgue, Cameron suddenly realizes his dreams of peace have morphed into the stuff nightmares are made of.

Kyle Bancroft doesn't have a clouded past... she "sees" everybody else's. Finding herself haunted by a little girl with a dark secret, her generic "Dr." life starts to spin out of control, but cryptic messages or not, Kyle is determined to come up with an answer and set her companion free... even if it kills her.

Is Kyle's mystery girl the answer to all of Cameron's question? Will Cameron even believe such a wild accusation, and if he does... is there anyway to stop his little town from tearing itself apart?

I'm going to be honest, (deep breath) I have been sitting here for over an hour trying to think of something to say about this book, a way to breakdown the characters... explain the narrative and plot sequences, but for once I am speechless. (Yes... shocker, I know) It's not often that I find myself in this situation, and it's a little unsettling, but alas... here I am. The fact is...I would have been completely content with this review being 1 sentence long.

"This book is the best book I have read in months"

(But then you would have labeled me lazy, and scolded me for my lack of originality... so here is the best I can offer you.)

If you are looking for expertly written characters, a murder mystery that (not only) reads like a movie in your head, but is so twisted that you almost need a piece of paper to keep the players straight... this one is for you. "While The Savage Sleeps" is not only a story that keeps you guessing "who" the entire time... but also adds that unexpected element of "what" as well, and even when you think you have if figured out, chances are you don't. The best part? The last 10% when something inside of you clicks, and you realize you care about the characters. (Oh the horror.)

So what does this mean for you? Simple. You are out $2.99 cause this one is a must read.

Happy reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: There is no such thing as harmless.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Suspenseful and Scary! 22. Juni 2010
Von DKM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Kaufman keeps the reader's attention with compelling characters integrated into a spine tingling narrative. He has created a plot that grabs your attention from the very first page. A terrific coupling of forensics and the paranormal. Indeed an impressive piece of work for a first novel. If you like to have the bejeebers scared out of you, read this book!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Frustratingly annoying book... 18. Mai 2012
Von books and corn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this as a kindle book after reading Lion, Lamb, and Hunted by the same author, expecting it to be just as good with perhaps a slightly bad ending as some other reviewers warned. This was a downright horrible book and I would never recommend this to anyone. Period. I read a ton of mysteries/thrillers/crime-solving books and they are easily my favorite genre of book because I like being fed fractions of detail in each chapter that makes me feel like I'm invested without resolving the overarching mystery that keeps me hooked.

This novel started off promising as others have mentioned, like the beginning of a CSI episode, but by 60% through the book (and this according to my kindle percentage), it was still just describing random mystery deaths without a single detail revealed about any of it. All the characters sounded so incredibly idiotic, especially the 2 main deputies. It would go from murder to murder and all the cliffhanger chapter endings would go something like, "and they knew they had to find the missing suspect because all the answers lie with him..." suspense...and they would just never follow up on anything. No suspects would be recovered, no further details revealed, and the police force would keep talking to one another like they found some amazing, case-breaking detail, but it would just be some really obvious fact they should've known by at least the second case. I also agree the female character was SO weak and unnecessary; she truly added nothing to the story except some random creepy factor that hardly explained anything. I literally cringed at the interaction between her and Cameron. Really? Just terrible. The dialogue probably annoyed me the most, though. At around the second third of the book, it seemed like every other word was italicized for emphasis and effect, but just as using thousands of sentences with exclamation points loses its impact, this was just overkill. Books read out in my mind exactly as written - very true to caps locks, exclamations, pauses, and italics. I hate it when one technique is overused like it was here. It's just bad writing.

Overall, the story was poor, characters unlikable/underdeveloped, interactions unnatural, and the mystery wasn't so much a mystery as it was a really bad random incident to explain it all, slapped together in the last 10% of the book. If I had to give readers an idea of the book by comparison, I would say it was similar to Children of the Fog in components (ghost mystery/thriller) but done considerably worse. Powers worse, because I thoroughly enjoyed Children of the Fog and would suggest it to others. All isn't lost, though, because Lion, Lamb, and the Hunted was very exciting and so well done - it's honestly a mystery to me how they could've come from the same author. Night and day in quality and execution. If Andrew Kaufman came back to read While the Savage Sleeps after publishing his fifth book, I think he would agree that this was pretty awful - like finding an essay you wrote in third grade as a college freshman and wondering how you didn't fail elementary school. I'll watch out for his future books, but with one horrible and one fantastic publication, it can go in either direction for me.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Expectations set too high 22. Dezember 2010
Von Lisa Reid - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I hadn't heard of Andrew Kaufman or his book until he followed me on twitter a couple of weeks ago. I looked at his twitter account, read the reviews here, and figured it was probably worth $2.99 to see what all the buzz was about. It's rare to see a book with over two dozen reviews and 5 stars overall.

If the book hadn't been built up so much by the reviews here, I suspect I would have been happier with it. It's a good book -- an interesting resolution to a murder mystery in formerly calm Faith, New Mexico. But from reading the reviews here, I would have thought this was The Best Book Ever! Not so. While Kaufman writes well (I enjoyed both the characters and the plot), I kept finding little nitpicky grammar errors or odd dialogue or just a strange sentence that I'd read three or four times, think, "Hm," and go on. But those things pulled me out of the story regularly enough that I found myself not enjoying it as much as I wanted to.

I'd like to see more from Mr. Kaufman. There are certainly some original thought processes at work here, and that's to be applauded. I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could (minus 1 star for all the times I was pulled out of the story, minus a half star for my blown expectations).

1.0 von 5 Sternen While the savage sleeps 26. Mai 2012
Von Richard V. Collins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm going all the way to 1 because I did finnish it, though I'm not sure why. And I kept asking myself why even as I plowed through the last 30 - 40%, though I did so, skipping a lot of the text along the way.
You would think there would be a lot of suspense & tension throughout a story with so many murders. You would be wrong! Even with two of the victims members of the local police force there is a total absence of emotion or passion expressed or implied by the chief and assistant chief, the latter the main protagonist.
Their relationship, and that of Cam and the female newcomer with some nonsensical pshycic connection to the events is almost comical. The ending is too, told in the form of a newspaper report developed by what means or information is simply unfathomable.
More mysterious and disappointing is how 76 reviewers could have given this 5 stars and so many others offering positive opinions. What would they rate one of the classics - I guess they'd be tied at 5, unless they gave demerits for complex words.
