Dead is Dead

by John Lansing

on Tour May 16 - June 30, 2016

Dead Is Dead by John Lansing From the “pulse pounding” (Kirkus Reviews) writer of TV hit Walker, Texas Ranger comes a riveting Hollywood thriller that will keep you captivated until the shocking conclusion. Retired Inspector Jack Bertolino gets his first taste of the erratic nature of Hollywood when A-list producer, George Litton, options one of Jack’s recent cases for a film. Jack is engaged as the film’s technical advisor, which stars It Girl Susan Blake. But more importantly, he’s on hand to keep a protective eye on Susan, who’s being harassed by a disturbing cyber-stalker. But that’s not all that starts to turn Jack’s world upside-down. When a six-year-old girl is shot dead in the living room of her family home, just blocks from where the movie is being filmed, Jack realizes there are threads connecting the movie, the murder, a brutal gang of brothers, and a terrifying body count. Will Jack be able to find justice for the young girl and keep Susan safe? Or will this be his last and fatal trip to Hollywood?

My review;

"Dead is Dead", by author John Lansing is another hit by this author. I really liked this book and I have liked others by this author. He writes his stories with strong characters and locations. It almost seems as if you are right there watching it unfold. I like his character Jack Bertolino and I am glad he is back. The only thing that seems to bother me is sometimes the language. The book is a fantastic story and really would be just as good without the bad language. In this book Jack Bertolino is investigating who killed a young child . She was shot right in her own home. Will he be able to solve this murder? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review by Partners in Crime Book Tours and these are my opinions.



  1. I am also a big fan of Mr. Lansing, and after reading DEAD IS DEAD, I will be for a longtime!

  2. I want to thank 3 Partners for hosting me today, and writing such a wonderful review. The support is greatly appreciated. All the best, John
