Somerville, MA, USA – WEBWIRE

“A fantasy-thriller complete with paranormal entities, sex, and a bit of violence.” Tulsa Book Review

“Go Ask the Dead” (ReadersMagnet; 2019) by Frank Tropea tells the gothic tale of Amanda “Mandy” Mannon, a beautiful young girl with psychic abilities and an insatiable appetite for sex. Born to an equally loose mother and seduced by her stepfather, she satisfies her pleasure by cavorting with both humans and spirits at the same time, particularly her living husband Craig and her Confederate ghost lover William.
The book has been well-reviewed by reviewers from reputable book review publications. Christopher Stone of The US Review of Books recommended “Go Ask the Dead” saying, “Tropea weaves his tale enchantingly, while also making the supernatural shenanigans—and the characters who propel them—feasible and frequently terrifying.
“Readers who crave a walk on the wild, spectral side may find this mad, mystic romp to be their cup of paranormal romance tea.”
Writing for Pacific Book Review, Ella Vincent called the book “provocative” and “thrilling” and described Tropea’s writing as “evocative” and “a mixture of smoldering and emotional.”
“His writing about the Civil War-era South is so vivid, readers will feel like they’re in lavish Southern mansions,” said Vincent.
Dave Eisenstark of IndieReader called “Go Ask the Dead” “a disturbing Southern Gothic ghost story and worthwhile reading for fans of sexy, supernatural romances.”
Writing for Manhattan Book Review, Rachel Dehning gave the book a star rating of 3.5 of 5 for its underlying topics of racism, abuse, unconditional love, rape, and the power of good versus evil – all of which “can affect a reader’s experience,” though “a select audience would really enjoy this story.”
Kristi Elizabeth of Tulsa Book Review found the fantasy thriller to be both “deeply disturbing” for its sexual scenes and graphic content and “very entertaining” for its cast of “exotic characters with wildly, fantastic personalities.” Giving the book 4 stars pout of 5, she wrote, “I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys paranormal fantasy.”
