“When reality TV collides with a real life murder it makes for a must-read mystery novel. J E Forman is a superb storyteller.”

– Tracie Tighe, Executive Producer Dragons’ Den and Four Rooms at CBC Factual Entertainment

“… the book moves at a speedy clip, with well-articulated plot points … But a mystery series lives and dies — pun partially intended — by its protagonist, and I couldn’t help but like Ria Butler. … She’ll be back to sleuth out another adventure-laden crime soon, and I’ll happily book an extra ticket for that trip.”

– Sarah Weinman, National Post

Really Dead stands as a satisfying series debut.”
