"The Dead Show: Life After Series Book 3" by Amanda Fasciano - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Gripping, Electrifying, And Suspenseful Tale For Occult Horror & Ghost Fiction Fans!


Overview: When a ghost-hunter style television show decides to film an investigation at Barrington Prison, it’s up to afterlife detectives Snow and Cadence to make sure the ghosts behave and follow the rules so as not to reveal themselves to the living. But when the child ghost of a spoiled southern belle acts up, and the ghost hunters reveal a newer, more sophisticated piece of technology, the protective veil protecting both realms may shatter.

After reading “Waking Up Dead” and “Dead Vessel”, Books 1 and 2 in Amanda Fasciano’s ghostly Life After Series, I was more than eager to sit back and enjoy Book 3, “The Dead Show”. Fasciano’s unique and creative occult fiction series puts together a dedicated team of ghost hunters with afterlife detectives who are diligently working on preventing the living and the dead from contacting each other in order to keep both worlds separate and intact. Wherein “Waking Up Dead” and “Dead Vessel” spend much time introducing the main characters, exploring what life is like on the other side, and setting up main protagonist, Cadence, in her afterlife digs, “The Dead Show” provides an opportunity for readers to experience two separate in-depth ghost investigations—or rather “ghost hunts”—from the perspectives of both sides (living and dead) who must work together to solve two seemingly unrelated cases. The first case, that of a little girl badgered by an invisible playmate, uncovers the sorrowful history of slaves living on Southern plantations suffering the outrageous abuse and entitlement of their owners. In the second case, the author adds much danger and excitement to this read with a TV production company that come in to film S.P.I.’s local investigation of Barrington Prison—An infamous and dangerous locale that has a bad reputation on both sides of life because of its dark past and paranormal experiences. In “The Dead Show”, Author Fasciano intriguingly foreshadows her next installment of the Life After Series (Book 4—TBA) with new clues about an insidious plot for the dead to possess the living.

“The Dead Show” provides a gripping, electrifying, and suspenseful read with never a dull moment for Occult Horror and Ghost Fiction fans. Author Fasciano’s writing flows naturally, her research on the setup of ghost hunting teams and procedures is well researched and her characters fit the bill, and her story is both imaginative and fascinating.

I highly recommend this novel be read in sequence as part of the series since it will help readers better understand the relationships between the characters and the overall theme of this story. “The Dead Show” is appropriate for ages 15 and up.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
