Book Description

“Are you the one who helped him kill the angel?”

Twenty years of repressed anger and memories. A bitter knot of hatred that binds and divides two friends. The dark secret that fuels and devastates them both.

“He killed it. I only helped him to bury it.”
Eddie's doing his best to get by, but every day the good fight just gets harder. And now there's a new burden to shoulder. Gray - his best friend and nemesis in literature, romance, and life - has landed in a bizarre mental hospital, known for its radical treatments, because Gray couldn't bear the weight of an unspeakable trauma.

The last time they met, Gray almost killed Eddie, but it seems that all is finally forgiven. Tonight, there's a wild hootenanny up at Gray's house.

The nuthouse.

And Eddie's invited.

4.0 out of 5 stars A crazy novel about crazy June 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Aptly told by Piccirilli.

All the characters are flawed, crazy, and, in that way, they all have a lot of raw humanity, with its fears and complexities. Somewhat like everybody else, I would say.

A very good two hours read.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Are You The One Who Helped Him Kill the Angel?" August 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fantastic novella by Tom Piccirilli!

Meet two men- Gray and Eddie. Both are authors of horror and dark fiction. Both share a secret about their past. But only one is in the "bin". That would be the loony bin, as Eddie refers to it. What put Gray into such a place? You will have to read this novella to find out.

This story took some crazy turns and the reader is never quite sure what is reality and what is not. (After all, my reality may not be the same as yours, right?) As other characters are introduced throughout the story, the reader is still trying to figure out what is what. Little tidbits are dangled-such as the question which I used as the title of this review. As the pieces start coming together, the reader is compelled to read on.

Frayed was skillfully written-philosophical at times, bluntly realistic at others, this was an impressive story. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars good read! January 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another excellent book by Tom Piccirilli. I read it all in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. It's about two men, Eddie and Gray, who may or may not have committed a crime when they were teenagers. As you get to the end, you realize things are not always what they seem to Eddie as he questions his sanity. I may read this again to look for clues I missed.

More About the Author

Tom Piccirilli is the author of more than twenty-five novels including A CHOIR OF ILL CHILDREN, SHADOW SEASON, THE COLD SPOT, and THE LAST KIND WORDS. He's a four-time winner of the Stoker Award, two-time winner of the International Thriller Award, and has been nominated for the World Fantasy Award, and twice for the Edgar Award. Marilyn Stasio of The New York Tims Book Review called THE LAST KIND WORDS, "A caustic thriller...the characters have strong voices and bristle with funny quirks." New York Times bestselling thriller writer Lee Child said of Tom's work, "Perfect crime fiction...a convincing world, a cast of compelling characters, and above all a great story" And Publishers Weekly extols, "Piccirilli's mastery of the hard-boiled idiom is pitch perfect, particularly in the repartee between his characters, while the picture he paints of the criminal corruption conjoining the innocent and guilty in a small Long Island community is as persuasive as it is seamy. Readers who like a bleak streak in their crime fiction will enjoy this well-wrought novel." Keir Graff of Booklist wrote, "There's more life in Piccirilli's THE LAST KIND WORDS (and more heartache, action, and deliverance) than any other novel I've read in the past couple of years." And Kirkus states, "Consigning most of the violence to the past allows Piccirilli (The Fever Kill, 2007, etc.) to dial down the gore while imparting a soulful, shivery edge to this tale of an unhappy family that's assuredly unhappy in its own special way."
