For Sela Warren, an evening out at the Black Kitchen begins a spiral into a dark and dangerous place. With a murderer on the loose, New Orleans has become a dangerous place to be, especially for a young woman out alone. When her friend, Mandy, bails on her, but leaves her phone behind, Sela grabs it for her absent minded friend. The phone rings, and Sela thinking it’s Mandy, she answers it. The caller is actually Chloe Applegate, the most recent victim of the Fishhook killer.

Sure that what’s happening can’t possibly be real, and not wanting to deal with it, Sela does her best to get rid of the phone and stop the confusing calls from a woman who should be dead. Soon Sela’s involved in the murder investigation, and Detective Kline thinks she knows more about Chloe’s murder than she’s letting on. As life becomes more dangerous, not even her new love interest, Dean, can be trusted, and Sela finds herself in a fight to stay alive.

Disconnection is a murder mystery that slides into a chilling horror. Sela is a young woman with some larger issues than most, but when faced with helping a deceased woman she’s pushed beyond anything she dreamed possible to endure. Ms. Samiloglu pens a twisted tale of supernatural evil with new romance, a touch of racism, and a group of religious zealots to stir up the conflict. A Fast-moving story, with plenty of action, suspense, and violence to keep fans entertained.

Sounds really good. I'll have to see if I can find a copy next time I'm at the bookstore.

It's wonderfully bizarre, and I love the romance in there because it always helps to soften all of the horror going on. There were a few typos, but you can figure them out easy enough. Let me know if you get a chance to read it. :)

Something new to add to your wish list. This has been out for a while so it shouldn't be too hard to find. :)
