Yes, the title of my latest book messes with my mind also!
When someone dies, they’re dead—right? Well . . . maybe not. And when someone dies at the hand of another, that’s labeled a murder—right? Well . . . maybe!
Sure, there are various degrees of murder—ranging from intentional to unintentional with legal terms such as 1st degree, 2nd degree, negligent homicide, etc—but what if the dead person simply wakes up and walks out of the morgue?
Is that considered a murder or “almost a murder” if the person wakes up the next day and recovers from that dastardly deed?
Well, that’s simply crazy. People are either dead or not, and dead people don’t just get up and walk away—or do they?
What about a person who appears dead with all the diagnostic clues: no tendon, corneal or gag reflexes? They may be pronounced dead, but are they truly dead beyond a shadow of a doubt?
I wrote a book that came out earlier this year, and I used that very premise to create a most interesting tale—two murdered people wake up the next morning and simply continue with their lives.
Impossible, you say? Maybe, but there is science to explain such events and there are pharmaceuticals to mimic death that could make such things possible.
This is a short synopsis of my book:
Detectives Rosie Young and Vince Mendez chase an elusive villain when two victims turn up alive less than twenty-four hours after their death. The body count climbs as they investigate how two unrelated victims share an identical death experience with no memory of the event. Evidence leads to startling revelations of deceit, greed and an international conspiracy in this entertaining mystery.
This relatively short murder mystery is fast-paced, dynamic and often read in one sitting. Five-star reviews state that it kept readers up at night and the book has been described as “Murder She Wrote” meets “CSI” for its attention to detail, while being fun to read.

Wow, sounds intriguing my friend! So that’s what you’ve been up to between those long distance marathons you’ve been running. 🙂
Yes, but my running friends don’t know that I plot murder scenes while running next to them in those long races. Shhhh – don’t tell them! 🙂
