It's fitting that the launch party for Jamie Freveletti's new book Dead Asleep falls on the day before Halloween. What better time to stay up all night (with the lights on, of course), reading about sea monsters, ancient voodoo curses, and an evil stirred to life on a remote island in the Caribbean?
"One of the top thriller writers working today….A master."
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key
