Just because Wilkin’s a crackhead doesn’t mean the shadows aren’t real.

They’re real. And they’ve been haunting him since he was seven years old. Mostly he ignores them.

But when the ghost of his best friend from childhood shows up at the local motel, Wilkin can’t ignore the call of friendship. And when his friend’s killer buys the motel so he can destroy the remains, Wilkin can’t ignore that, either.

Wilkin steals his friend’s skull before the killer can destroy it and is plunged into a hot mess of a supernatural thrill ride.

A death-race pursuit of a child’s skull. A spirit-whispering trucker hauling plush toys to Kansas. Five demonic farm-kids in a housing project. A Dodge City marshal who executes wayward ghosts. A nasty yellow jersey that takes the joy out of living. And a graveyard full of snitches.

It’s enough to make you want to hit the crackpipe. All leading to a climax where staying alive is the least of Wilkin’s worries.

Because when most of the people around you are spirits anyway, DEATH AIN’T BUT A WORD.

"I won't say more to avoid spoiling the plot, but this book is well worth a read."

Reviewer: .

Death Ain't But A Word starts with a prologue. By the end of it, a page into the book, I was hooked.

Wilkins might be a drug addict but he really does see ghosts. When the ghost of his childhood friend turns up asking for help, he can't say no. What follows is one of the best urban paranormal titles I have ever read, and a very good book overall. The characters are well drawn and sympathetic, the plot keeps you reading, and the writing is spot-on.

I won't say more to avoid spoiling the plot, but this book is well worth a read. Full of grim humour, plots twists and events to keep a reader hooked from the first page to the last, it's well worth a look.

The cover is readable even in thumbnail, and the colour choice of purple, yellow, and red are extremely eye-catching. The formatting is clear and legible, with chapter titles clearly set out. It has a table of contents with each chapter linked, accessible from the Kindle ToC button. The front matter, accessible by clicking back from the prologue, covers many of the book's good reviews and it has well earned them.

An intriguing and enjoyable read with some great ideas.

4 stars - our highest rating and well deserved.
