A terrific debut...Like the chicken-fried steak that its characters love, Playing Dead combines Texas and noir in unexpectedly wonderful ways, with a refreshingly real heroine and a plot that moves and twists with the unpredictability of a rodeo bull.-- "Susanna Kearsley, New York Times bestselling author"
As Heaberlin leads the reader through several complex threads, her fast-paced narrative rarely flags.-- "Detroit News"
I loved Playing Dead from cover to cover-pulled me in and wouldn't let me go until I finished in the wee morning hours. Best fiction I've read in a very, very long time.-- "Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author"
Impressive...her debut's most striking feature is Tommie's narrative voice, which is so winning and vivacious.-- "Sunday Times (London)"
Julia Heaberlin's Playing Dead is a wonderfully suspenseful debut. Heroine Tommie McCloud is scrappy, sassy and has a heart as big as her home state of Texas.-- "Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author "
Tommie is a smart, sassy, loving, and doggedly persistent narrator in this fast-moving mystery that occasionally tugs at the heartstrings. A promising debut.-- "Booklist"
Tommie McCloud is the kind of character that every female reader ends up wanting as a sister of best friend-a friend of passionate loyalties, a no-nonsense woman who doesn't possess the insincerity gene, a not-too-girly Texas spitfire...feverishly compelling...Heaberlin tells the story with whip-smart dialogue, an insistent pace and keen wit; it's irresistible enough that I sped through all three hundred-plus pages in one sitting.-- "Dallas Morning News" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
