This nursery rhyme will keep you awake.

What she doesn’t remember …

One by one the letters arrive at the FBI office in Savannah, Georgia. Inside, each bears a name–a victim of a twisted crime–and the singsong phrase Ashes, ashes, they all fall dead. Special Agent Tessa James becomes obsessed with finding the killer whose victims are crying out to her for justice.

Will kill her …

When sexy, brilliant consultant Matt Buchanan is paired with Tessa to discover who’s sending the “Ashes” letters, he discovers a serial arsonist who is leaving nothing but murder in his wake. Inexplicably, the clues point to Tessa herself, forcing her to realize that if she can’t remember the forgotten years of her past, the name on the next letter will be hers.


I love to watch thriller and scary movies so when I can find a book that can give me chills along with keeping me on the edge of my seat as much as a movie can I am absolutely thrilled. That’s absolutely what Lena Diaz did with Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead. This book is pulse-pounding, a thrill-a-minute and has a sexy man to go along with it.

Tessa James an FBI agent in Savannah, Georgia is obsessed with a cold case. The Savannah office has been receiving anonymous letters inscribed with only a person’s name and an evil twist on the children’s nursery rhyme Ring Around The Rosie which Tessa believes the person sending these letters has a dark and deadly reason for sending these letters. The only problem is she is the only one who believes their is a serial killer out there and that more bodies are going to be found and she can’t convince her boss to let her investigate but he finally gives her a week to come up with some evidence that there is a case or lose her job. The only problem is she has to work with Matt Buchanan the younger brother of her old partner. They have a history which isn’t a good one. The friction between Tessa an Matt can be felt and it builds until it has to be released one way or another. This book was a page turner and grabbed me from the first page. If you like Karen Rose or Allison Brennan then this book is for you.

Grade A+
