T. Marie Benchley, author of Once Wicked Always Dead
Once Wicked Always Dead

“In any mystery there is no greater satisfaction being hit with a surprise that you never expected and you will find plenty of that in Once Wicked Always Dead.”
—Simply Stacie Book Reviews

“Benchley’s book could easily have been dumbed down and labeled with a Harlequin symbol, but instead, she made the romantic elements take a backseat to the mystery/thriller part of the story, which results in a gripping story, and a fast, entertaining read. If you love a mystery, you’ll love Once Wicked Always Dead.”

“T. Marie in Once Wicked Always Dead has written a romantic suspense thriller that will be broadly read and remembered, perhaps even more so than for Peter's novels. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and strongly recommend you seek out T. Marie Benchley’s debut book!”

“This amazing psychological thriller, with its incredible mix of romance, deep dark secrets, and sheer evil will blow your mind. I was simply amazed at how well crafted this book was.”
—Feather Quill Book Reviews

“I went through a plethora of emotions while reading this book, fear, joy, sorrow, disturbed, excitement, exasperation, distress, exhilaration, pleasure, sadness, confusion and even grief. At times I wasn't sure where the story was headed but I was drawn into the story so quickly and was unable to put the book down until I completed the last page and even then I could not get the story out of my mind!”
—Dollycas Reviews

“I was fascinated by the plot of this book.  It was very well thought out.  This story is a fine mystery that keeps you guessing until the last page.  It is full of family intrigue, romance, deception and murder.”

“There are surprises and lots of twist and turns, with a well written back story and well define contrast between locations that keeps you guessing what is going to happen next. Will make a definite MUST-READ!”
—Once Upon A Twilight

Once Wicked, Always Dead is a stellar romantic suspense. The characters are vibrant, complex, and compelling.  The plot is sound—I never did figure out who the sociopath was until it was revealed to me.  High marks for that! I will be looking for more work from this very talented author!”
