“Loved this follow up to Dead Air by JJ Gould. His creative writing style is full of voice and has character development at every turn – I find myself feeling empathetic or even angry with characters after just a few paragraphs! I hope there are more. Extremely good book. “

    Buckle up and get ready for a great ride! Dead Heat is a great read. Fast paced, exciting, drama, humor and just plain fun! I enjoyed it, and read it in two days, could not put it down. Can’t wait to jump into the third in the series. Great writing Mr. Gould, you are a talent!

    Even better than Dead Air! Very enjoyable read. I read the author first book “Dead Air” which brought me to this one. Being from South Dakota myself and familiar with Mr. Gould , the books piqued my interest. I love how he gradually brings all the players together and builds into a crescendo and a great ending. The book gives good insight as to how radio stations (especially small town radio) works, and he uses his knowledge of radio to create the setting of a crime scene at a station. My only caveat is that he is a bit hard on SD (especially small town) and it’s residents. At times it seems like he is describing a waste land full of idiots and outlaws. I know the book is fiction, and I know the author does not think this, but I fear others may get the wrong impression. SD is a beautiful state full of good people. Read the authors series, then come see it for yourself!
