A year ago, archaeologist Leslie MacIntyre barely survived the explosion that took the life of her fiancé, Matt Connolly. In the long months since, she’s slowly come to terms not only with her loss but with her unsettling new ability to communicate with ghosts, a dubious “gift” received in the wake of her own brush with death.

Now she’s returned to lower Manhattan’s historic Hastings House, site of the explosion, to conquer her fears and investigate a newly discovered burial ground. In this place restless spirits hold the secrets not only of past injustice but of a very real and very contemporary conspiracy with deadly designs on the city’s women—including Leslie herself.

By night Matt visits her in dreams, warning her and offering clues to the truth, while by day she finds herself helped by—and attracted to—his flesh-and-blood cousin Joe. Torn by her feelings for both men, caught between the worlds of the living and the dead, Leslie struggles against the encroaching danger that threatens to overcome her. As she is drawn closer to the darkness at the heart of Hastings House, she must ultimately face the power of an evil mind, alone in a place where not even the men she love can save her.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 2/1/2014

    " Fun take on someone who sees ghosts, although I felt that the main characters were sometimes a little dim. Maybe it is frequently that way with omniscient point of view, but I always wanted to tell Leslie to catch a clue. Anyway, fun and suspensful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharla | 1/21/2014

    " I usually LOVE Heather Graham, but I'm sorry ... I don't like a bad ending! :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/18/2014

    " Heather Graham books are things I seem to periodically revisit ... I'm always sure I'm going to like them more than I do. They're generally entertaining, but not what I'd call riveting, and The Dead Room was no different. The concept that the main character survives a deadly accident (her fiance does not), only to realize she can communicate with ghosts is certainly an interesting one, but I just never felt the tension I know Graham was trying for. And I felt like the ending was frustrating, but then again, Graham probably is writing, or already has written a follow up novel that will include some of the same characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/9/2014

    " I loved it!! I could not put it down! :) "

    " it was a very very good book.. completely different ending than i thought it would be wow.. very good ending but not expected.. it was a very enjoyable read though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani Zinser-Arnone | 12/23/2013

    " really good.....had a feeling who the killer was but was still surprised at the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nikita | 12/12/2013

    " Not a great ending, liked her other books a lot better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 12/2/2013

    " The ending, while predictable to point, was also a "Gotcha!" ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holli | 12/1/2013

    " This was a great beach read (literally) and I'm glad I brought it along with me on my trip. It kept me captivated until the last page......... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Murphy | 11/27/2013

    " Lame ending! I enjoyed the book until the ending. What was the point of building a relationship between Joe and Leslie?! UGH! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 11/26/2013

    " This book was also passed along from Geoff's mom. A fairly quick read but a good story nonetheless. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 11/6/2013

    " She can tell a story you don't want to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Auntie Di | 10/21/2013

    " Loved this book....had to stay up all night to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 10/21/2013

    " I loved it. One of her best. I read the Harrision Investigation novels completely out of order but this was a good one to end on. I never saw the end coming but it was the right end for this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burouj | 4/5/2013

    " Interesting read, but too many loose ends for it to be enjoyable. Also, the motive of the killer so does not add up, it's like she just picked one at random and hurried away to dream up a motive. Apart from the identity, it was still ok "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 1/28/2013

    " Wow! I could not put this book down, such an amazing mystery/thriller, wow!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 12/24/2012

    " I great suspense book with a real WTF moment at the end. Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megha | 12/21/2012

    " its actually 3.5... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lily | 11/13/2012

    " The book started out great but after finishing it, I couldn't help but be disappointed by the ending. However, it was entertaining and it had some good twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adelheid | 10/19/2012

    " Only past the prologue so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 10/18/2012

    " I have just started reading this book. So far so good. This book was good. I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Bolin | 9/26/2012

    " good read, heartbreaking and keeps you wandering "Who dun it"? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Petersen | 7/12/2012

    " Although much of The Dead Room is a typical romance/mystery, Graham's touch, light but firm, of the supernatural made it more. Throw in urban archeology, in New York(!), and it was nearly worth four stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cal | 5/23/2012

    " A quick read, like most of her paranormal romance novels. I liked this better than the last one and not nearly as much as the first book (Ghost Walk) that I read. She seems to be a hit-or-miss kind of author for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda Johnson | 5/14/2012

    " Like most of Heather Graham's books, this is formulaic, however that didn't stop me from enjoying it! I like a book that I can escape into at the end of the day. Supernatural suspense, who done it, and a little romance. What's not to like? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Ruetz | 5/13/2012

    " I failed to get into this book as much as I usually do with her books. for some reason, I failed to connect with the female lead or the male lead in this story which made it hard for me to enjoy the book. It was still an okay book, but not her far by a long shot "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheer Papworth | 11/28/2011

    " I like books that involve archealogy and I was intrigued by the fact that there is a whole, underground world beneath Manhattan. I also could buy the paranormal, psychic themes of this book, but the ghost sex put my over the edge. I'm not mad that I read this book, but I for sure didn't love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meagan | 11/13/2011

    " This book kept me guessing until the very end which I like when I read mysteries. ..I found the ending tone a little disappointing though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 8/25/2011

    " The ending completely took me by surprise. I didn't even think that was going to happen. Boy, was I shocked. It's kind of sad really. The ending, I mean. It's got one heck of a twist of events. But I like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica K | 8/12/2011

    " Doesn't have as much of the ghostly communication that the other Harrison Investigation books do. The ending is a bit different from most romantic suspense books, but an astute reader can guess what will happen based on who the main character is having sex with - oops, I mean 'making love'. :P "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/29/2011

    " I just can tell you that this was a very sad book. I am not going to rate it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 5/6/2011

    " After I started reading this book I realized the same author had written The Island, which I thought was unreadable for all its cheesiness and bad writing. Still, I decided to give this one a chance and I'll say...it was decent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 5/5/2011

    " Fun take on someone who sees ghosts, although I felt that the main characters were sometimes a little dim. Maybe it is frequently that way with omniscient point of view, but I always wanted to tell Leslie to catch a clue. Anyway, fun and suspensful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 SJuhl4 | 3/2/2011

    " The plot was good the story well thought out. But once again I didn't like the characters. It's hard to like a novel if the characters don't appeal to you for whatever reason. They seemed to lack depth. Something was just 'off'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/19/2011

    " Yet again, another awesome book! I absolutely love these books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 11/14/2010

    " Loved the aspect of interacting with ghosts from the past "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/24/2010

    " She can tell a story you don't want to put down. "

    " it was a very very good book.. completely different ending than i thought it would be wow.. very good ending but not expected.. it was a very enjoyable read though "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 NATUI | 5/21/2010

    " This book had a great plot and totally crashed and burned at the end. Talk about being left wanting more. I gave it three stars because the first bit was so good. I am sure others may not find the ending as crap as I did, so do give it a fair shake. Don't say I didn't warn you, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristel | 3/6/2010

    " Decent story. Stupid ending. "
