An intricately written novel, Alane Ferguson keeps you guessing the twists and turns of "The Angel of
Death." The story is told in the perspective of seventeen-year-old Cameryn Mahoney as the daughter of her coroner father. Her being the daughter she is means that she has seen more gore than your average teenager. Cammie is plunged into the world where she must distinguish which is reality and which is fantasy when her pupil, Kyle O'Neil, finds the remaining corpse of her English teacher in his bed. Her main objective in the case is to help analyze the facts and evidence provided to solve the mystery of her English teacher's death. Although Cammie tells herself to focus on the case given to her, she finds herself falling head over heels for Kyle O'Neil. She begins to trust and reveal herself and her bottled-up secrets and memories to Kyle. When Cammie and Kyle start a relationship though, it becomes even more necessary for Cammie to figure out the crux of her case. Yet the question is, will Cammie be able to separate what is reality and what is fake or will she be to preoccupied with Kyle to resolve her teacher's death?
Normally, I am not the type to go for a mystery novel, yet I found the novel enjoyable. As you delve into this novel, it is quite impossible to put down for a break. If you do take a break though, you will find yourself thinking in circles of what is going to happen on the next page. Will Cammie fall into a trap? How does it end? This novel is like a game of dice. You never know when you will roll "snake-eyes" or a win. "The Angel of Death is a well delivered detailed novel of murder, mystery, and suspense. Even reluctant readers will find this novel a fast pace breeze of page-turning suspense.
