I loved this book. Death is the coolest narrator; both curious of humans and yet apart from them.
The structure of the novel is so creative. The story is unravelled through a series of vignettes in which Death, witnesses the murders and guides victims' souls on their next journey, interspersed with diary extracts and letters written by Nemesis from police evidence. To the end, the reader is left questioning if Annabelle/ Nemesis is just a delusional and angry woman, or really is possessed, as her

By far one of the best books I have read, and had the privilege of proofreading. When I first started proofreading this book I must have read it at least three times before I started work.
It is one of the rare finds that I could not put down. Compelling from beginning to end, the suspense made me keep reading until the story had played out in its entirety, and upon reaching the end, I felt the compulsion to start over again.

A truly great piece of work and well worth the re-read. You have done ou

Death narrates the majority of this story in warm and friendly tones. We hear how he helps the newly deceased to make the transition between this life and through the door into the next, in a manner of their own chosing. Sounds quite comforting doesn't it? But there's a villain. Of course there's a villain. Have you heard the term, 'Meet your Nemesis?' Well here she is, taking on the role of villain, although claiming that she's acting from a higher moral position. I loved this book. It has a re ...more

Awesome story, and I love the framing device. It's neat to see how many different ways Death can be in the right place to watch critical parts of the story.

This is the first book by my very dear friends and I was able to get my hands on a copy the moment it was released. I remember being asked to read the first segment, years ago, and finding myself needing to know what came next. Unfortunately, being friends with the authors didn't get me any more privileges and I had to wait, like everyone else, to find out what happened.

This is Death's story. Not the story of Death; but a story told through the eyes and experiences of Death as he goes about his

Fascinating story compiled of vignettes narrated by Death, and Nemesis' diary entries all cleverly linked to cover the subject of infidelity and retribution.

I enjoyed the story, which was a new way of looking at an age-old subject. The deaths are all linked, even though they might not appear so at first glance. Some were particularly well-written, such as the child footballer. It's not all sad stuff, nor even gruesome: in fact I laughed at Death's comments on his own appearance towards the end o

While linked through the tale of Nemesis and the linked murder's - what makes this stand out is a collection of lives spent, from the point of view of a sympathetic Death. The framing narrative allowing many tales to be examined in one, and well worth reading.

Born in the South East and transplanted Oop North by her parents in 1987, Bec still sounds like she lives in the wilds of Surrey.

Then nothing happened to her until she met and fell in love with Neil.

Seriously. I mean, obviously, she went to school and had jobs and met some seriously awesome people but life didn't begin until she met, was friends with (for 4 years) and then got drunk with Neil. The
