Dead Like Me

| December 24, 2016


On edge after a two-week mandatory leave, Homicide Detective Kate Springer is blindsided when she discovers she shares a link with Tampa’s newest murder victim. A troubled teen found strangled and dumped in a remote part of town. The bond between them threatens to expose Detective Springer’s past—a past she’s been hell bent on keeping secret. When the killer finally emerges from the shadows, Kate’s secrets aren’t the only thing on the line. So is her life.

New Cover, Same Great Book!

Interview With the Author
Q: How is Dead Like Me different from other mysteries?
A: I don’t just tell the story, I shed light on what’s going on in in the main character’s head. What Kate’s feeling and why those feelings lead her down the path she takes. Mysteries today are full of great plot twists but as a voracious reader of this genre, I’ve always wanted my favorite authors to get into the head of their characters more. So I wrote the book I’ve always wanted to read.

Q: Do you have plans for writing another Detective Kate Springer novel?
A: The second Detective Kate Springer book, Deadly Fantasies, came out in December 2013. In the first book, Kate is required to see a shrink when she’s involved in a shooting. Kate and Dr. Nina Grace form a strong bond that I further explore in the second book. When Dr. Grace calls Kate in the middle of the night stating, “I think I just killed my husband,” Kate investigates the case. She fights to clear Dr. Grace’s name, knowing in her gut that the woman couldn’t possibly be capable of the horrific murder of her own husband.

Q: Why should readers give these books a try?
A: Because I write detective novels with as much emotion as fast-paced plot. The Detective Kate Springer Series will take you on a roller coaster ride refusing to let go even after you cry “uncle!”

What People Are Saying About Dead Like Me
“This book hooked me from the very first chapter. It was exciting, kept me on the edge of my seat, and I adored the characters. There was plenty of humor and sarcasm to the dialect and Kate’s personality was amazing. It is rare that I can so completely drop into a book as fast as I did with Dead Like Me. . . . This was a phenomenal book and I CANNOT wait to see more from this author. If you’re looking for a fantastic mystery on par with the mysteries of J.D. Robb (just without the romance), definitely check out this book!!

“The mystery unfolds quickly and within a few chapters I was completely hooked. Kelly Miller is excellent at keeping the suspense fine-turned, but knows when to turn it down a notch and throw in some comic relief. I found myself setting aside all responsibilities on a Saturday afternoon to race through the last half of DEAD LIKE ME to find out what happened! I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next in the series.”
