JD Phillips, one of my favorite authors, is re-publishing a number of her novels. The Dead Pool is one of them. As the reviews below say, this is a fantastic read! If you haven't read any of JD's books, this is a great way to acquaint yourself with an author who is sure to captivate you.
A dangerous storm, a mysterious stranger, and a love that leads to a journey into the dead pool - and the beyond.

Once again this author takes my breath away. Subtle hints are hidden throughout the book that will only be recognized if you have read the author's last book, "Tainted" as a special treat for those of us who read everything JD writes. The story opens with a man who is escaping from someone (or something)and collapses outside Bella's house in the middle of a stormy night. As she helps him, they discover he doesn't know who he is or what's happened to him. Strange otherworldly events occur as their relationship grows. We unravel the mystery of who the man is, where he came from and where he is going at the same time the people in the story do. Once again I never saw the twist coming but it brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart. Actions do have consequences and maybe once in a while people do get what they deserve with a little help from the dead pool.

This author never ceases to amaze me with her lyrical writing. The main characters are intensely likeable, the plot is well paced and the ending is a surprise, as usual. I highly recommend that you read "Tainted" first, as this book drops many clues that are related to the other.

I totally agree with Reviewer: KDP of Indiana. Their description of the book is dead-on. This book is a must read! I have read all published works by this author and The Dead Pool definitely doesn't disappoint. I was hooked from the very first page. I thought about the characters, places and events long after I had finished the book and was so glad I visited The Dead Pool. The ending was so unexpected and very moving - it made me cry and it made me think. Take a swim in The Dead Pool...you will come out refreshed and feeling very much alive.
