Now this book was interesting. Things that make you go hmm. Fellows beware. Just shows that things that are done in the dark will come to the light. A Woman scorned are not to be messed with.
Buy Something Else. Jan 14, 2008
I purchased Deadly Tease because the story was sounded interesting, but I started to read, and than I read some more and the book lacked interest. McGriff, should have added more spice and drama that would have made a reader like myself want to read more but instead I decided to stop and move on to another book. I suggest reading Sugar and Spice by Keith Lee Johnson.
Teasing can be deadly...... Oct 10, 2007
I really enjoyed Deadly Tease. It reminded me kind of like an urban mystery. I was all into the story. I thought I knew who "The Appointed One" was, but in the end I was fooled. Great story; it kept my attention and I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. Kudo's to Ms. McGriff!
Fast Paced! Sep 7, 2007
"Deadly Tease" by Michelle McGriff was a very fast paced novel with a lot of twist and turns. She brings to life a number of characters in the story of cross dressing men and men of the church. She tells the story wonderfully and keeps you on your toes from the start to finish!
Lurking In The Shadows. Sep 7, 2007
Portia Hamilton is lonely after the death of her father. That loneliness leads Portia to a charismatic church where she develops a crush on Pastor Julian Marcum. Julian ends up doing nothing but using Portia but she still can't seem to get him out of her system. Julian is sexy and arrogant and feels he can do no wrong. Things get complicated for Julian when he gets involved with a flamboyant gay female impersonator name Kyle at the gay strip club called the Rainbow Room that he frequents. Kyle wants Julian to come out of the closet but Julian won't do it. Nothing but trouble comes Julian's way when a serial killer called the Appointed One starts targeting down-low gay clergy that are the Rainbow Room's biggest clients. Julian is trying to keep his secret life under wraps by trying to give Portia the commitment that she deserves but will it be too late? Portia also has a chance meeting with Lawrence who's also a detective on the Appointed One's case. Will Lawrence let his guard down long enough to forge a relationship with Portia or will this case consume the both of them?
Deadly Tease is an edgy, psychological thriller by Michelle McGriff. McGriff skillfully brought a story with intriguing characters. At first glance, this looks like the typical church down-low story but it's much more than that. This novel is a classic contemporary fiction tale with a well thought out whodunit twist. As you flip through the pages, you will feel the frustration of the detectives as they try to find out who the Appointed One is. Readers need to pay close attention to this story or else you will totally miss who the serial killer turns out to be. The unique twist at the end of the novel will leave you speechless. Deadly Tease is a dramatic and exhilarating read that will be a sure delight for readers.
