Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Television anchor Lacie Wagner submits to more gruesome thrills in this sensationalistic sequel to Burnout (1999). On the Nantucket beach where Lacie schedules her exercise runs from her vacation home, a "strange water warrior" Jane Doe washes up, contrary to the likely action of wind and current. The body is oddly marked with lacerations and burns, adorned with diamond earrings and also wearing military-grade diving equipment yet the local and national military establishments deny knowledge of her. Lacie uses this story for her comeback to national news after medical leave (due to action in Burnout) and in the course of her investigation collects a circle of new people: muscular Tom Wheeler, the Nantucket medical examiner; aggressive Assistant DA Hinks; cranky Boston medical examiner Miles McKenzie; and eventually, through McKenzie's contacts, the cartoonishly superlative investigator Nick St. James. The stereotypes and coincidences pile up until Lacie is sure she has been targeted for a weird scheme of torture; the mysterious manipulator behind the scenes feeds her hints about other missing women and sets her up to publicize his macabre trophies as hard news. Disturbing physiological effects, dubious technical gadget descriptions and the preponderance of beautiful, lush-chested women with powerful jobs stalked and tortured by ambiguous handsome men make this work a touch more lurid than Patricia Cornwell's or Linda Fairstein's.

If you plan to start 'Dead Tide' leave yourself plenty of time! You won't want to put it down. And leave the lights on! It can get pretty creepy. That said, I really enjoyed this second book by Jeannine Kadow featuring Lacie Wagner. Wagner, a TV journalist recovering from a recent brush with death, begins what appears to be a fortuitous investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a young woman whose body washed up on the shore near her home on Nantucket island. Her intense investigation soon leads her to the determination that she is somehow the target of this psychotic killer.
Lacie enlists the aid of a renegade investigator,Nick St. James, to protect her and find the man she believes is responsible for the savage murder. In a plot full of superbly detailed investigation and unexpected twists Kadow leads us on a relentless and desperate search for an evil killer. She does it so well that it is impossible to put this book down until the end and then you will regret that it is done.

At ten years of age, in a car fire deliberately set, Lacie Wagner burned her hands so badly that they were scarred and misshapen. Twenty-three years later, the man who set the car fire returned to Lacie's life, killing her daughter's father, kidnapping her daughter for six weeks, and almost killing her. Now, nine months later, Lacie is almost healed and ready to report to work as a TV anchor and reporter on Washington DC.

Relaxing in her Nantucket home, Lacie gathers the strength to reenter the real world. While jogging along the beach, she comes across the dead body of a young woman. Tests prove the woman was murdered and while investigating the victim's life, Lacie discovers that the deceased was part of an unauthorized black ops group. This group is linked to Lacie's next door neighbor and lover Justin Vale, a man who has a special agenda planned for Lacie.

Jeannie Kadow has written an exciting thriller showcasing a complex and driven protagonist who refuses to let her deformity handicap her in anyway. DEAD TIDE is a serial killer thriller that stars a villain that is even more depraved than Hannibal Lechter. Ms. Kadow is on the level of a Patricia Cornwell and a Nancy Taylor Rosenberg in turning up the suspense in a believable manner.

I agree with all the reviews with one BIG exception. (If you haven't read "Burnout" a far superior book to this one, don't read any further.
I was soooo furious when I came to page 12, and read that Lacie gave Jack
the choice of either being with her , or giving up his job, that it was hard for
me to continue reading. Fine for him to give her the gift of life for herself
and her daughter but not to anyone else because of her fears. As a couple
they had it all. I would much rather read books about Jack Stein. I read
"Burnout" in two days riveted, "Dead Tide" took me six, Please Ms Kadow,
bring back JACK, with or without Lacie.

If you haven't read Jeannine Kadow's work you are missing out! Her book Burnout was the first I read I couldn't put it down! Blue Justice was original and thought provoking! Dead Tide was heart pounding just as if I was there! The emotion, scenary, and detailed descriptions is beyond comparison with other authors! Kadows unpredictable thrillers are hard to put down! Just as I finished the last page I was no sooner on my computer emailing my friends telling them how great it was! Dead Tide is a must read! I cannot wait for the next book!

This is a wonderful read! The storyline moves adroitly; the protagnists are well-developed characters and each achieve that "yeah, I wanna know this person" level. The "bad guy" is truly unique and unflinchingly evil. I wanted to read this book in one sitting, but also wanted it never to end... I've added Kadow to my Favorite Authors list, which, by my standards, holds only the best of the best (writing).
