"Deadly entertaining." ––Larry Kahaner
"DEAD IS BEST... knocked my feet out from under me AGAIN. Short chapters, great characters, razor-sharp writing, and a lot of heart."
"..Never have two characters, alive or dead, gained my trust so implicitly. They are beautifully drawn and poignantly captured. They continue to grow as characters despite the fact that they’re relegated to the afterlife. They will be your guides. They will observe and impart wisdom. They will be a force of light in an otherwise dark tale. Despite what Charles thinks of himself, you will like him. You will redeem him because you, unlike others who shared his time on earth, will value him. As for Cali, you will be heavily invested in her journey and her fight for survival. You will not rest until she finds her salvation.
A mix of snark and suspense, humor and humanity, Dead is Best is a fast-paced read with a powerful payoff that is richly satisfying. Ten out of five stars."––Steven Cooper
"Death is different for everyone, but Jo Perry has written yet another book that gives death the finger. Charlie and Rose might be dead, but they are super cool with it."––Bibliophile Bookclub
