Why read it?

1 author picked Déjà Dead as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

In addition, she tells the terrifying story of a forensic anthropologist helping to track down a serial killer who finds herself to be the next targeted victim. Déjà Dead…

From Delvin's list on where the action hero is everyone.
