Nicholson was known as a "horror" writer, but with these stories he demonstrates that he's a versatile writer and one to be reckoned with in the crime and suspense genres. At times you'll find Nicholson's witty humor in these tales, and at other times you'll be guessing who done it. If you want to read some great writing that'll draw an emotional response from you, make sure you check out this omnibus edition for less than the price of a mass-market paperback.
Simple answer. Yes.
What made me fall in love with Scott's writing is found here. I enjoy books with deep characters, and these three books don't disappoint! The stories are well written and are easy to read.
Crime Beat is my favorite, followed closely by Disintegration and the Skull Ring. All three books are worth easily full paperback price. Great deal by a great author. Try him. You won't regret it.
Disinigration will keep you swing all the wy to the very end. I was never quite sure where Scott was going to end up and I o love a good surprise! The Skull Ring was super creepy! Crime beat was also a great read!
Nicholson has very descriptive, fully developed characters that will stay with you even as you read the last words of the stories!
When I read "The Skull Ring", I actually got up and made sure all the doors and windows were locked and looked in my closets. I never do that. But he has a way of writing that seeps inside those dark crevices of your mind, making you believe that even the impossible is possible, and is probably going to happen to you.
"Disintegration", well, easily one of the most disturbing books I've read. So disturbing you want to stop reading, but you can't. In that way, it reminded me of "As I Die Lying". The prose in this book is haunting and beautiful, with metaphors and descriptors that are both astonishing and uniquely creative.
"Crime Beat" is an entertaining novella (short story) about a reporter in a small mountain town, which is both enjoyable and easy to read.
To bundle these together and to be able to get them for free or at such a small price is a deal no one should pass up. Hours and hours of entertainment, and possibly a few nightmares, for one low price !
Its difficult to write a review of Disintegration without giving significant chunks of the plot away. I will say, however, that Nicholson's self-proclaimed "mystery thriller" is far more than that. It is a deep dive into the human psyche. He writes the story from a depth many of us shudder to consider. Sure, the good/evil twin dynamic is there. Sure, the Wells family is clearly corrupted from their own wealth. But its the acts of human depravity that made me cringe and continue reading. All the way up to the last click of my Kindle I thought the characters could not be more despicable. And I was wrong.
This book will have you squirming in your seat and will send you scrambling for more Nicholson.
I found this sandwiched between two novels in the Mystery Dance and found it to be good fun. I could almost hear the gruff voice of the beat reporter telling the story. No big surprises but still entertaining.
--The Skull Ring
I prefer to read authors instead of books. If I find one I like, I'll tend to read the entire catalog by that writer. Nicholson is in that camp for me and I continue to pick up his works. The Skull Ring is a fantastic (although a bit dated; Satanism) "individual vs. world conspiracy" story. Nicholson does a masterful job at keeping you guessing right up to the end. Is the handyman in on it? Is the boyfriend in on it? Is the therapist in on it? I had fun looking for the answers.
For those that need a complete ending without a lot of loose ends, The Skull Ring will satisfy.
Very entertaining read!
