3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Disappointing
Read Dead Wrong and enjoyed it so much that I have now just finished Dead Certain. But hey after reading near enough the whole book the killer is captured in a few lines which I was really disappointed in. Also what happens to Amanda & Sean, did I miss a few pages? Hopefully more will be come clear in Dead Even, but all in all disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd book of a trilogy!, 8 Mar 2005
This review is from: Dead Certain (Mass Market Paperback)
From the inside Flap...
With her stalker captured, antiques dealer Amanda Crosby can finally sleep at night. Having worked hard to put the nightmare behind her, Amanda has vowed to never be a victim again. But when her business partner, Derek England, is found with a bullet through the back of his head just hours after she left an incriminating message on his voice mail, Amanda finds herself in danger of becoming a victim of another sort.
All the evidence points to Amanda as Derek's killer, and Chief of Police Sean Mercer is building the case against her. But when another of her colleagues is found brutally murdered, it's obvious that someone other than Amanda is behind the killings. Suddenly Amanda is a target once again, as a diabolical killer circles ever closer-and the only thing that stands between her and becoming the third and final victim is the man who had tried to put her behind bars. . . .
A great follow on from book 1 (Dead Wrong) The game was a fantasy to pass time! but someone wants the game completed!
The final to this enticing trilogy is Dead Even! be sure to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 of a trilogy., 27 May 2004

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Dead Certain (Mass Market Paperback)
Three prisoners met briefly one morning. They soon had a game imagined out. Each of them thought up three people that they would love to kill once they were out of jail. Then the three swapped victims. Vince Giordano was to kill the three people on Archer Lowell's hit list, who was still serving time in prison. He did not HAVE to do it, but since Channing had gone after the three on Vince's list (in previous book titled "DEAD WRONG"), Vince felt the need to hold up his end of the verbal contract, the verbal game. The first was Derek England. The second was Marian O'Connor. The third was Amanda Crosby.
Amanda Crosby was furious at her business partner, Derek. Derek went to Italy to find items for their antiquities shop. What he purchased and shipped to Amanda turned out to be stolen goods. Amanda was having to send the item back to the Middle East, where it was stolen, and the shop would have to take a huge loss in money. Amanda swore she'd kill Derek, as she swears every time he did something stupid. But this time, someone killed Derek before she saw him again and Amanda's threat was still on Derek's cell phone voice mail. She instantly became the number one suspect.
Chief Sean Mercer of Broeder Police did not want the beautiful lady to be a killer. He was very attracted to Amanda. But Sean went by the book, so he forced himself only to think of her as "the suspect". When Marian, the lady who owned the store next to Amanda's was murdered, Sean was sure the two killings were connected. Yet he could not figure out how. It soon became apparent that the only connection between the two murdered people was Amanda. The second murder proved that it could not have been Amanda. Sean was positive it all had something to do with Amanda's old stalker, Archer. Problem was that Archer was still in prison, made no phone calls, had zero visitors, and not a single friend in jail or out. But someone was killing for Archer and Sean knew Amanda would be next.
***** Author Mariah Stewart gets better and better with every book she writes. I feel sorry for anyone who misses this trilogy. It is one of the best ones I've had the pleasure of reading. Mariah Stewart ROCKS! *****
