Credit brilliant author Ike Hamill's skillful mastery of the narrative for this engrossing novel. Stepping away from his usual horror genre, Mr. Hamill has created a unique and mesmerizing story rich in details and descriptions. His characters are complex, fully realized, and entirely believable. While multiple narrative lines are presented, the graphics at the beginning of each chapter make it easy to follow each thread.
Skillful Death is an amazing achievement. Although not in the horror genre, it shares many of the intriguing qualities of Mr. Hamill's other epic novels, The Hunting Tree and Extinct. The wait for Skillful Death was most definitely worth it. Thank you, Mr. Hamill, for once again providing an extraordinary literary experience.
Malcolm is a skeptic of things that are weird or magical. His job is to find the logical explanations for all things odd, from reading people's palms to unique card tricks, and he's very good at it. His boss, Bud, is somewhat of a very wealthy hermit who has lived a very interesting life. Bud asks Malcolm to chronicle his life. Along the way Bud and Malcolm decide to try to visit Bud's childhood village. While this book was very interesting before their adventure, it becomes a wild ride with many unexpected twists and turns. It also leaves a few questions unanswered, at least directly, not the least of which is "who is Malcolm?"
Mr. Hamill's books have always been very well written and a joy to read. This one is no exception. If you love reading King or Koontz or Hamill, you will really enjoy his latest.

I have given it way to much time. An author has to make some effort to pull the different segments together, before that last few chapters. Makes no sense. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Jean McDaniel
