Product Description

Product Description


A sadistic serial killer is on the prowl at Juniper College. The victims, all students, are targeted alphabetically; the naked bodies of A to H found floating in the city sewer, each of them suffocated and with their surname initial carved into the back of their neck. Victim I narrowly escapes, but not before identifying the killer as Rodney Boone, a mild mannered English professor at the college. After stabbing Boone she leaves him to burn in his death house.


Eight years later and rookie police officer, Rebecca Angell, is thrown headlong into assisting an FBI investigation when she finds a body in the sewer with the initial J. From a small town and new to Juniper Police Department, Angell is young, smart and keen to impress, but already up against a sexist partner and colleagues who don’t believe she is up to the job. In over her head, she is determined to prove them wrong.

The Feds are convinced they are dealing with a copycat killer, as while there are many similarities, the crime scenes are slightly different. Boone’s body was never recovered though, which leads Angell to question if maybe he didn’t die in the fire.

As they scramble to uncover the truth, the body count continues to rise, and meanwhile a killer stalks the campus, intent on completing the alphabet.

A rollercoaster of a ride, Dead Letter Day grabs from the first page and doesn’t let up.

If you enjoyed A Thin Dark Line by Tami Hoag or I Can See You by Karen Rose, you will love this book. Rebecca Angell is a feisty likeable lead who has been compared to JD Robb’s Lieutenant Eve Dallas, in the In Death series, and is an enjoyable companion through the twists and turns that lead to the shocking conclusion.

About the author

I have always been something of a daydreamer. Even back to when I was a tot and all the other babies were starting to crawl and walk and talk, I just sat there in my own little bubble, taking it all in, not in any rush to go anywhere.

As I grew the pattern continued, I hated school with a passion, was painfully shy – hard to believe now - and only happy when I was scribbling stories. In the rest of my classes I doodled, dreamt and stared out of the window. I wanted to have adventures in Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree, I longed for my life to be a John Hughes movie. I wanted to write like Stephen King and have my plots directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

An overactive imagination is a powerful tool and great for what I do, but unfortunately it didn’t help me with my grades. Released into the real world at fifteen, I had no idea what path to follow and so I tried a bit of everything, from working in my dad’s video rental store – which only fuelled my love for film – to being the world’s worst hairdresser. Seriously do not ever let me near your head with a pair of scissors; I make the stylist who worked on Edward Scissorhands look like Vidal Sassoon.

I wrote my first novel at age twenty. Six months earlier I had been devouring Stephen King’s Misery on a sun lounger in Tenerife, thinking it must be a hell of a task to write a book. I had ideas, some of them good, and eventually decided to commit one to paper.

A few months later I finished writing a tale I tentatively called Twisted. Armed with a copy of the Writers Year Book I bombarded every publisher and agent I could find. I had several flat out rejections, but some gave encouragement, telling me I had potential and to persevere.

So here we are in 2013 and I have persevered. There were four more novels, a few more rejection letters, a brush with an unscrupulous publisher, a break with a top agent that restored my self-belief, then when I had almost cinched a deal with one of the big guns, another blowing rejection. I quit my dreams for a while but the writing bug wouldn't go away... and you now hold twenty years of my dreams in your hand.

More About the Author

Keri Beevis wrote her first novel at age twenty, but it was a further twenty years later before she finally found success after entering the Rethink Press New Novels Competition 2012.

Her entry, Dead Letter Day, was a winner, earning her a publishing contract with Rethink Press and the book proved to be a hit, both critically and publically, with the Eastern Daily Press saying the book was 'exciting, gripping and tantalizing', while Iceni Magazine called it 'brilliant from start to finish'.

Keri has just released Dead Write, the sequel to Dead Letter Day, which sees the return of Rebecca Angell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Fast Moving Murder Mystery 2 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Downloaded this onto my Kindle and enjoyed every page I couldnt put it down. The story holds you all the way through with brilliant twists and turns. The story and characters grow before your eyes leaving you wanting more. For a first novel this has been written as if by an very experienced crime writer there is nothing that would lead you to believe it is her first published book. I look forward to reading many more of her exciting murder mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Letter Day 10 Mar 2013
By CathyP
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not the normal genre of novel that I read but after a friends recommendation I decided to give it a go. I have since been glued to its pages and spent many nights propped up in bed unable to sleep until I'd read a few more chapters. It has had me enthralled with all the characters and twists and turns of the plot. A highly recommended author, one who I will be yearning for the completion of her next novel. Well done Keri, hurry up and finish the next one!

I downloaded this on to my kindle as the title appealed to me and within two days I had read the entire book, given it normally takes me at least two weeks to complete a book! I just could not put it down, the plot kept you on your toes and the twist at the end I really did not see coming. Having just read some the other reviews I had no idea that this was the author's first book it read as if it was written by a very experienced writer. I will be looking out for this author in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you guessing until the very end... 5 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have just finished this book and have to say it kept me entertained throughout. Loved the characters, especially Angell and Boaz, and their banter with the FBI agents, and there were bits that kept me on the edge of my seat. By the middle of the story I found it hard to stop reading. I really thought I had the end figured out, but wow, I did not see that coming.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I knew there might be a twist but they kept coming and kept the reader guessing. I'd definitely look out for the next title. So glad you decided to give it another go. Hope you get going again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really great read, had me gripped all the way 19 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is very much my genre and having been holidaying for 4 weeks I have the opportunity to read some of my favourite authors, Lee Child, James Patterson, Michael Connelly and Neil White the masters of suspense. Without doubt Keri Beevis ranks amongst the best. The book had my constant attention and was anything but predictable. I have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone and look forward to reading her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning Debut 13 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent book. I read it almost in one sitting. A page turner is a phrase often used, in this case it is certainly is true.A real rollercoaster of a read. I would defy anyone to figure it out.
I love american fiction, especially crime fiction having read all J D Robbs In Death series and Karen Rose I was looking for something new. I have found my new addiction. Keri Beevis is going to be one to watch. She is up there with the best.
Roll on the next book
