This second novel in the trilogy picks up shortly after the first novel ended, and the plot lines that were left open in book 1 are picked up and tied together nicely. Mike is just the same; hard boiled yet sweet with wonderful lines like "I pulled out of the driveway and...looked, wanting to catch one more glance of her form. I was out of luck - or maybe my luck was saving itself for what was ahead."
There are three things that stand out to me in a Bernheimer book;
First: The man can write dialog that just crackles. His characters are well-defined with clear voices; their smart banter and witty comebacks sound real and natural - not forced. The verbal back and forth is one of Bernheimer's true strengths and make his characters a joy to listen to. And speaking of listening to the characters' voices - I swear when I read the character of Silas, I have Morgan Freeman's voice in my head!)
Second: Bernheimer is a pro at immediately sucking you into a story. I don't think you'll ever see a review that says "it took 70 pages but I finally got into it". The action starts on page 1 and keeps rolling.
Third: He keeps me guessing. I loved being surprised by his plot twists!

The premise of The Skinwalker Conspiracies is Mike settling into his role as the world's Ferryman. Having gained a number of allies, he sets upon his most important mission yet: to find his father who had been possessed by a Skinwalker during his teenage years. This gets him involved in a massive conflict between Lee Harvey Oswald (!), Hernado De Soto (!!), Virginia Wolfe (!!!), and his best friend's stripper ex-girlfriend's ghost.
The number of historical personages who show up in the Dead Eye series is one of the series' main appeals. Despite the fact Mike discovers that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't the party responsible for Kennedy's death due to possession, he's still portrayed as a sociopath radical Marxist nutjob. While none of the character's portrayals are historically accurate, they're enjoyable and work for the context of the world.
The Skinwalker Conspiracies is far more linked together than its predecessor, less like a series of funny vignettes and more like a single coherent narrative. Hernando De Soto is an excellent villain who possesses numerous abilities which are both plausible as well as fascinating to watch. I also like the insight this book provides into ghost metaphysics, stating that the more famous a ghost is as well as the older, the more powerful they are.
There's some truly great moments spread throughout the book.Read more ›
Mike Ross returns in this excellent sequel to Pennies for the Ferryman. He’s still missing an eye, still plagued by ghosts, and his love life is still nonexistent. However, he has been working out so he should be able to punch ghosts with more effectiveness. Perhaps his love life will even come back from the grave.
Mike is on a quest. His dad walked out on him and his mom when he was a kid and he learned in Book 1 that it might not have been by his dad’s own volition. His dad may have been possessed by a skinwalker and Mike has to know the whole truth in order to put his past to bed. In his hunt for his dad, he also has to work through the revelations from Book 1 concerning his genetic ties to Edgar Alan Poe. Mike isn’t the first Ferryman in his family tree. With all that and the ever clinging ghosts dying to chat with a mortal, Mike is in for an adventure.
I enjoyed this story even more than Book 1. I think it is because Mike is indeed a reluctant hero. He’s still recovering from wounds received in military service and his disability check barely lets him get by while living at his mom’s. So, yeah, he likes to see some financial gain for assisting the numerous ghosts that want him to carry a message or return some family trinket to a long lost niece. But on occasion, Mike feels compelled to do something simply because it is the right thing to do. In the end, it is this sense of good that drives Mike onward even when he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
This adventure featured a Cadillac that broke down more than once (electrical interference from emotionally disturbed ghosts), a wedding ring (haunted with memories of a honeymoon gone awry), a body swap (say ‘Woof!Read more ›
