This was a quick easy read, and I quite enjoyed it, but still felt it didn't live up to Blackman's hype. I really must read Noughts & Crosses.
Dead Gorgeous did keep me engaged, and kept me guessing on several scores. At one point I was almost convinced that ALL the guests were ghosts! I had my doubts about Miss Dawn and Miss Eve even at the end.
Curiously enough, I couldn't find the edition I read listed. The ISBN matches the cover above, but the cover of the one I read was very different. In my opinion, it was better. The dark and brooding hotel in the background and a girl in the foreground. ( )
