The 5 Manners of Death 

by Darden North

Praise for THE 5 MANNERS OF DEATH:  

"Nothing is more refreshing for a reader than a book that holds your attention to the very last page. North is an excellent storyteller with a very creative mind ... a job well done." ----- Renee Harmon, Rambles.NET 

"In all, The 5 Manners of Death is a satisfying mystery that brings those five manners of death - natural, accidental, suicidal, homicidal and undetermined - to light in a new and unusual way." ----- Ellen Feld, Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"As Diana investigates we are treated to a roller coaster of ups and downs of a thrill ride.  THE 5 MANNERS OF DEATH  is fun journey into 5 manners of death and whodunit!  

Highly enjoyable, thrill ride of a story.  A great escape."  

----- Dr. Cynthia Lea Clark, Psy.D., Ph.D., MHt., Diplomate Homeland Security, Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine

"North’s characters show that he can draw from life and his plotting shows that he can pace a narrative.  His details evoke college life from ... a time when entering freshmen had their heads shaved, and dormitory monitors walked the hallways in the evenings. (Ole Miss Alumni) will revel in the local color, and they will find the plot twists worthy of John Grisham." ----- Allen Boyer, HottyToddy.com

"North expertly crafts the characters and settings to pull the reader into the story and holds you until the last pages bring the novel to a spectacular end. It is no surprise that Darden North is an award winning author. He paints landscapes and parlors with his words, filling every scene with lifelike characters that could be the people next door. Of course, you might not want some of them as neighbors."

----- Laura Hartman, WriteKnit.com

"Darden North (writes) good mysteries. Mysteries that are hard to put down. ... Not only is the plot of The 5 Manners of Death top notch, but the characters fit into that plot with ease. Don't miss this one."  ----- Mary Ann Smyth, Bookloons.com
